Abstract
The social construction of ritual Nuju Jerami as a form of gratitude for the success of rice harvest in indigenous communities Orang Lom Bangka needs to be questioned.  Some previous research findings suggest that the ritual Nuju Jerami is a period of time for the Lom community to restart a new field for rice growing , a means of strengthening the kinship system, and a symbol of traditional identity. Based on the results of the study showed that the rhythm of Nuju Jerami has been constructed in two ways. First, the ritual Nuju Jerami is constructed as an field of intersection between the social exchange system and the exchange of political interests: the repayment of customary forest tenure by the corporation of oil palm plantations. Network connections and funding of funds for the implementation of Nuju Jerami from corporations reinforce these findings. Second, the construction of modernity culture accelerates the process of transforming subsistence values ​​into the orientation of materialist values. The cultural values ​​of nuju jerami are being stripped away and replaced with the values of commercially-oriented materialism to the extent of entertainment and meaningless celebrations. The social construction of Nuju  Jerami needs to be placed in an effort to counter the construction of the interests of the land and the unfairness of modernity as well as to build cultural awareness by institutionalizing Nuju  Jerami based on community development.
