Banten and Central Sulawesi are two areas where earthquakes are often followed by tsunamis. History records that the community has experienced earthquakes and tsunamis for a long time. They have been recorded in Central Sulawesi and Banten. Several of these earthquakes were of quite a large magnitude. These experiences help to produces a variety of different beliefs and knowledge about how to protect oneself from disasters. This knowledge then appears in the form of various traditional ceremonies, stories or fairy tales, or are believed to be Pamali or prohibitions. This knowledge can be used as part of a community-based disaster risk reduction strategy.
