Article 12 of Regional Regulation Number 6 of 2008 concerning Communal Land and Its Utilization, namely: "Ultimate land disputes in Nagari are resolved by the Nagari Adat Density (KAN) according to the provisions as long as the customs are in force, ascending and descending, and endeavored by way of peace through deliberation and consensus in form of peace decision. KAN has an important role in resolving customary land disputes. The settlement process in Minangkabau custom is a form of social advocacy model intended to provide an understanding that the form of problem-solving activities is carried out by involving and paying attention to values relating to the public interest. The findings in this study are that customary waqf land disputes do occur, especially over the customary lands of the people in the Nagari in the research location (Luhak Nan Tigo).
