The tourism sector is an opportunity for the community to create innovations to increase the economic capacity of the family. The uniqueness of an area if managed properly can become a new tourist destination for tourists. Such is the case with Jati Bali Village in West Ranomeeto District, South Konawe Regency. A village with unique potential with Balinese cultural characteristics, but located in the Southeast Sulawesi Region of Indonesia. In addition to its unique culture, in Jati Bali Village there is also a historical site in the form of a Dutch colonial heritage bunker. By Halu Oleo University, this area is used as a forum to devote knowledge to the community in the form of the KKN Tematik (Thematic Community Service Program). This program is held as an effort to foster collective awareness and community innovation power in the development of historical and cultural tourism to improve the economy. It was identified that the potential for historical and cultural tourism in Jati Bali Village apart from bunkers, there are also temples for worshiping Balinese Hindus, performing arts accompanied by gamelan music, as well as traditional Ngaben ceremonies which are still being maintained. Meanwhile, in terms of natural management, this village has agro-tourism potential with modern agriculture, because basically agriculture is the main source of income for the Jati Bali's community, who originated to be transmigrants from Bali. The participatory approach is used as a method of assisting the community to prepare for the development of tourism objects in the village. Thus, the Thematic Community Service Program in the form of counseling, training, and empowerment based on historical and cultural tourism has become a strategy and effort for academics from Halu Oleo University to increase people's sources of income, especially the people of Jati Bali Village
