Abstract

This research aims to explore the knowledge and experience of local Papuan on village
programs, in accordance with the massive previous 10 years developmental budget. Data were
obtained from three villages, using questionnaires, focus group discussions (FGD), observations,
and interviews. The field findings added more knowledge and experience to participants, such as
the program's name, the amount of funds, and its source. The initial limited knowledge was due
to the dominance of village elites in information mastering, social status, participation levels
(Maseleno et al., 2019), language factors, and social relationships. Village development is
internalized with the view of life "askesi ros" (progress), which is subjective, considers the
development program as the domain and responsibility of the government. Furthermore, the local
community tends to participate objectively, assuming the program provides direct added value.
Conversely, the village elite felt they had the right to enjoy the "askesi ros" in order to accelerate
program implementation, however, the community to limited to several developmental stages.
The development program needs to start from the village because it is owned by the interest of
the government (Monuh). This is because, for the past 10 years, the welfare of the poor
population has been ignored with the program destroyed by various interests, minimal
participation, and assistance. Therefore, the willingness and sincerity of the village elite, all
program managers, and stakeholders are needed in appreciating the cultural value and meaning
of "askesi ros" as a symbol used to represent "Ororoisa" development (flowing down).
