Abstract

This article aims to discuss the understanding of Manggarai youth of their folklore and the methods of transmission between generations. A qualitative research design was used with survey and interview methods to obtain data. The survey was conducted on 146 students and in-depth interviews took 15 people who were considered to be representative of all respondents. Based on the analysis, it can be seen that the inheritance of Manggarai folktales still occurs, although the number of known folktales is insignificant compared to the number of Manggarai folktales that have been transliterated and known by the Manggarai community. In addition, based on the level of education and the language used for intergenerational inheritance, it shows the reduced role of the Manggarai language, and a new transmission method is needed by the dynamics of the community so that the preservation of folklore can be carried out in the future.
