Ethnography method was employed to collect data and decide as well as conduct in-depth interview with several key resource persons.

For the people, Oath of Service demands the village apparatus to not only responsible for the definite parties such as the government and the people, but also to the indefinite ones such as the ancestral spirits and their late great-grandparents.
