Abstract. This paper discusses a number of cases of cultural resources management in Kalimantan, which did not comply with the Heritage Act and formulate ideas of a benefitting-based model of cultural heritage preservation. Such efforts were conducted by identifying and evaluating implemented rules and conservation activities, which have been undertaken by the stakeholders of culture in Kalimantan. The evaluation shows that a double-standard regulation implementation of cultural heritage conservation in Kalimantan have had occurred. Furthermore, apparently, subjective-affective perceptions and interests of stakholders have had also affected the objectives and activities of cultural heritage management. Thus, the proposed preservation model is built by inducing cultural heritage benefitting-perspective in the system-context, which actively involving communities in conservation activities, as well as positioning archaeological offices as facilitators, mediators, and cultural heritage preservation supervisors.
