This research uses normative and empirical research. The results’ research indicate that the implementation of the adat village government system with the Ondoafi government system naturally has some structural, administrative and social obstacles. Structurally, the Ondoafi Adat Government has very broad powers/authorities. It has also  administrative barrier  in terms of supervision from the Regional Government, and of course it will be influenced by the community/social environment as one of the obstacles faced by the adat village government system. The position Ondoafi in traditional governance structure according to the Regional Regulation No. 8 of 2016 has actually run two systems of government, namely the Adat or traditional government system and the customary village administration system that were formed based on the Jayapura Regency Regulation. The new structure of the Adat village apparatus already exists in the Adat governance structure and the Adat functionaries in the Ondoafi system are inherited, hereditary, and sacred. They are responsible for their duties to the ondoafi.
