Hibua Lamo is a cultural system that binds communities in
North Halmahera. It is a form of conflict resolution among the
communities by harmonizing interests between conflicting groups
as well as binding the groups into a new relationship bond. It was
tested by riots of Moluccas, including North Halmahera. This study
shows that there is a difference context of emergence between
Habermas's thought and local knowledge of Hibua Lamo. However,
based on the Habermas's perspective of communication ratio,
Hibua Lamo at least get the spirit to a new birth. Based on the new
understanding, Hibua Lamo now exists to rely on communicative
ratio which is able to withstand annexation of market system and
the state, and also to tie the communities in North Halmahera
through peace consensus.
