Abstract

The tradition of using pig blood in traditional islamic rituals by mosa laki (tribal chief) of the mole flores tribe is still carried out today. Islamic teachings forbid its followers to touch or consume pork because it is considered as something haram. in the tradition of the mole tribe, the use of pig's blood has been carried out for generations and has become something that is mandatory. in the implementation of traditional rituals, pig's blood is only held or smeared not to be eaten. This study use a qualitative approach. The theory used is semiotics according to charles shanders peirce. the results show that the meaning of pig's blood in the traditional rituals of the mole tribe is the interpretation of success in people's lives in the field of livelihood between the two religions that coexist, and the harvest success of the mole tribe who are catholic and Muslim.
