Abstract

 This paper discusses the religious and cultural values in the process of Islamizing local culture through local cultural products such as wayang (puppets). Wayang  is a pre-Islamic community tradition and then was Islamized by Sunan Kalijaga as a means and medium of Islamic da’wa through arts and culture. Materials and appearance of wayang puppets philosophically acculturated with Islamic doctrine through languages more Islamic and theological. This paper uses qualitative method on the basis of library research and literatures. It also uses religious, cultural, and philosopical perspectives. This paper shows that the puppet’s discourses were developed by Sunan Kalijaga on the basis of Islamic theological perspective. That puppet has become cultural heritage of Nusantara archipelago and has been developed since the early period of Islamization and it is relevant and easily understood by the people of Java and Nusantara.
