Abstract

Indonesia possesses various interesting cultures and traditions found in several villages and regions. Traditional communities are considered obedient to the values passed on by their ancestors, where some wedding, birth, and death rituals only apply in the region. Cirendeu Traditional Village are welcoming to guests and tourists interested in learning about their traditions. The purpose of this research was to determine the traditions and culture of the Cirendeu Village community in Cimahi, West Java. This research used a qualitative method with ethnographic studies to describe the traditions and communication culture of Cirendeu Village. The data were collected through literature study, direct observation, and interviews. The Cirendeu Village community adheres to the cultures inherited from their ancestors. Their rituals and ceremonies are self-taught and passed down to the next generation through direct involvement and participation in the rituals to ensure the philosophy is adequately understood. The traditions and culture are not communicated and disseminated to outsiders, but the community is open to people that wish to know and learn about the Cirendeu Traditional Village. The tradition and culture are Saka Sunda New Year or Sura'an and Ngarajah Puncak Salam traditions, the mulah sarah sirah cai ceremony, alongside wedding, pregnancy, and birth rituals.
