Abstract— Traditional and cultural landscape has a conservation value that is linked to the continuance of traditions, so that the landscape doesn’t only exist for functional or visual, aesthetic reasons but also has a responsibility to local culture. The aim of this research was to (1) determine the relationship between education level, age, amount of family expenses and land area on income level, (2) determine the existence of native land rights for the Sahu indigenous group, (3) determine community perception of the importance of cultural landscape organisation in forest management, (4) formulate a concept to conserve cultural landscapein forest management. This research was done using the descriptive research method with a quantitative and qualitative approach. Analysis of the chisquare showed that factors outside of the land had an influence on the level of community income, while general factors, like education and amount of family expenses did not. The Sahu ethnic group had traditional land rights in forest management because of community agreement through the traditional legal council. This council satisfied the specific characteristics on the subject of native rights, existence of specific boundaries of the land as lebensraum which isan object of native rights, and the existence of a traditional, legal community authority to take specific steps. In macro the organisation of the landscape in the area covered by the Sahu ethnic group is divided into forest, housing and agricultural areas. The forest area surrounds the agricultural land and the residential area. In micro, the arrangement of the cultural landscape which surrounds the housing area is classified by the local community as Bangan, La’lat, raki, jeramedansosoki. Continuity of the organisation of the cultural landscape in forest management appears in quadrant 1. This position demonstrates that continuity of the cultural landscapein forest management faces some threats but stilll has internal strength.
