Abstract

Rumah Gadang is a traditional Minangkabau house in West Sumatra. This house is made of environmentally wood. Many people do not understand the function and value of the Gadang house and then replace it with a modern one. This paper invites people to use it as a house to maintain their local wisdom. More presence will make the atmosphere feel more Minangkabau. Also welcomed with polite Minang language and distinctive musical accompaniment. It can remind anyone who comes to enjoy a distinctive cultural nature. Using methodology, analytical descriptions, direct observations (ethnography) as well as from the results of observation notes from previous years' visits as well as various previous studies. The key point is realizing the preservation of the Gadang house by participating directly in the community.
