The Samin community is an indigenous community with its unique and unique culture. The presence of modern culture in the traditional environment has implications for the emergence of a new order in the culture of the Samin group. The Samin people who initially did not like to mix with other groups except with their own group, became more open to accept new things in their community. These changes encourage researchers to study the Adaptation process as a Local Community Strategy in Social Transformation. Data collected through interviews, observation and documentation. Data analysis uses interactive design. The results of this study indicate that: First, the adaptation of the Samin people develops from an evolutionary understanding that humans always try to adapt to their surroundings, both biologically / genetically and culturally. Second, the social behavior carried out by the Samin community is an objective condition united with a collective commitment to a value influenced by the social system, cultural system, and personality system of each individual. Third, the social transformation of the Samin community is influenced by internal and external factors, which is the result of a process that very complex of various social, economic, political, and cultural sub-systems. Fourth, the social life of the Samin people is fundamentally an organic evolution, that society is ideally democratic, moral, and progressive.
