The people of Central Kalimantan generally recognize their works required to depict tradition as a cultural custom of the Ngaju Dayak tribe with the value of local wisdom. The phenomenological qualitative method was used in this study. Data were collected using observation and interviews. In the study, it was revealed that the value of the local wisdom of Huma Betang underlies the economic life of the artisans to give rise to rational, altruistic, moral behaviour and a natural lifestyle in the pattern of production, consumption, and views on welfare and is inherited in family economic education through experience-based learning, exemplary and habituation. Research on economic activity from the perspective of rationality, morality, altruism, and lifestyle in the wisdom of Huma Betang needs to be done more broadly, especially for all Ngaju Dayak tribes in the district or province. Further research is required on developing empowerment for Nyatu sap artisans related to business management, financial literacy, increasing expertise in innovative designs, and analysis of the development of family economic education models as implications of this research. The attention and partisanship of stakeholders, namely local governments and related agencies, are needed in preparing regulations and programs for Nyatu sap artisans and other who carry local culture as the speciality of their creative work. The development of an experience-based family economic education model from Nyatu sap artisans can be adopted into financial learning in formal education through economic subjects with the theme of entrepreneurship and a creative economy based on local wisdom.
