Religion is a kind of social system comes from a non-empirical power. It was used by its believer to achieve salvation. In primitive religion, religions practice tried to manipulate the creatures and supranatural powers for themselves, by conducting rituals, ceremonies, prayers and dancing, and by sacrificing a person or animal. All of these religions activities were conducted to ask solutions for their salvation. according to the reasons, religion was associated with culture whenever the product of religion and culture are damaged by certain people. It can couse conflict both inter groups and intra groups. The different practice of culture in certain community affects the different practice in religion. In Indonesia, for instance, multifaces of Islam in Java have invited antropoligist to do research about Islam and Java.Besides Java, Balinese Islam also has unique appearence and performence. Not only having aculturated with local culture, but Islam in Indonesia also encounters Hindu as majority religion in this island. Looking at this phenomenon, islam nusantara is a crucial matter for being studied by using anthropological theory. The chosen approach is because the practice of Islam nusantara is identic with local culture (Java-Hindu) and its presence has been widely used. Besides, genetically Islam as religion derived from Middle East (Arabic) so that this is what differentiate between Islam Arab (Arabic Islam) and Islam Nusantara. Field studies show that the practice of islam nusantara constitutes an acculturation product of Islam and local culture but not in contrast with Islamic values (syar’i). Here is an anthropological studies distinguish between local Islam (Islam Nusantara) and Islam Sinkretis (syncretic Islam).
