Abstract

The purpose of this study is to explore information related to the symbolic meaning of women in the Nganyaran Ceremony. This research was conducted to the people of Kasepuhan Ciptagelar, Sirnaresmi Village, Sub-district Cisolok, District Sukabumi, West Java, conducted from June to August 2018 with ethnographic methods. Data collection was carried out by observation, participant observation, in-depth interviews, secondary data studies, and documentation. The results of the study showed that the structure created in the Nganyaran ceremony described the functions of women who could be said to be life givers. In this context, Dewi Sri or Juru pare or paddy is also a symbol of reproduction (social) for the Kasepuhan Ciptagelar people. So that the Nganyaran ceremony becomes a meaning revealed in the symbol system that has a function as if it were a reality as a form or social arrangement of the Kasepuhan Ciptagelar native people.
