This paper entitled “Tracing the Root of Conflict on the Cultural Herirage between Indonesia and Malaysia”. From the historical perspectives, the relationship between Indonesia and Malaysia had been long journey and caused some cultural similarities between Indonesia and Malaysia. A lot of similarities between Indonesia and Malaysia cultures had brought up a term that was frequently said by Malaysia to Indonesia as “cluster brother”. In a matter of cultural claim, Indonesia people should aware that Indonesian and its culture had spread widely through various regions for a long time. Thus, our culture was existing in other communities in other country and acknowledged as a culture of other nation. In other side, Malaysia should be honest to the history that some of its culture were rooted to Indonesia culture. Although it felt that some of its cultures, that were similar with Indonesia’s, were its original Malaysia culture. To show the good will and respectto the cluster brother, Malaysia should convey the root of its culture, including its tourism promotion. Finally, mass media in Indonesia as well as in Malaysia had not functioned as socialization media of cultural heritages for both parties. It was due to less coverage of culture if it was compared with political coverage. Then, cultural heritage coverage appeared to be political affair.
