Abstract

This paper examines the tradition of handing over bungo kelapo carried out by the Bukit Bulan Clan as a traditional wealth that needs to be explored. Bungo kelapo is a symbolic custom that is handed over by the induak bako (the men’s side) in the wedding procession to the semendo party (the woman). Usually a symbol that holds various meanings, it requires an interpretive approach to explore multi-layered meanings which in this case is Paul Ricoeur's hermeneutic. The method used in this research is descriptive qualitative. Data was collected by means of observation, interviews and documentation which were then analyzed in Paul Ricoeur's hermeneutic review. The findings of this study suggest that the interpretation contained in the tradition of handing over bungo kelapo is a symbol of prosperity, love, and the responsibility of the induak bako to the nephew who is getting married.
