It is important to ensure the sustainability of the resources, tangible and intangible culture in the future. Most local wisdom knowledge is transferred orally from one generation to another, and through this process, a lot of local cultural heritage have been lost. In many cases, Malay local wisdom which includes knowledge, beliefs, values, practices and teachings in the past and the present is unique to the culture and society.
