For that reason, this work offers appropriate values in legitimating and admitting a legal existence for Bajo effort’s local wisdom such as the rights of traditional fisherman community of Bajo tribe in human rights law as indigenous people right based either on National and International Law and; the legal protection of Bajo communal rights in exploiting sea and traditional fisherman criteria after UNCLOS 1982 and MOU BOX 1974 including its amendments.
