Main Article Content
The literacy tradition of Sundanese society appeared around the 16th century AD. This was attested by the discovery of the ancient Sundanese Sanghyang Siksakandang Karesian (SSK) manuscript written in 1518 AD. The discovery of the manuscript was not only illustrated Sundanese literacy tradition at that time, but also the ability to explore and understand ideas both delivered in writing and in audio- visual. As a matter of fact, literacy activities at that time had achieved the level of understanding and solving social and statehood problems with referenced to behavior in forms of dogmas. Thus, literacy activities at that time had involved and devoted all potential and expertise to manage life or life skills. The manuscript of SSK also illustrates the realm of literacy that has been covered at that time, for example reading and writing literacy, numerical literacy, scientific literacy, financial literacy, and cultural and citizenship literacy. The description of the above facts will be explained descriptively.
