Abstract


This paper discuss the role of oral literature in carrying out a ritual ceremony. Found several ritual ceremonies in its implementation involving elements of literature including oral literature. A literary expression that is transmitted or inherited orally. Oral literature that can be found in ritual ceremonies is classified as primary oral literature, especially the addinging-dinging rituals in Selayar Islands Regency, South Sulawesi. Oral literature found in addinginging-addinging ritual is oral literature in the form of kelong (singing) during the ritual implementation which is classified as sacred. The Kelong in addinging-dinging rituals are found during the making of holy water and during the peak of the ritual. It is very important to uncover the functions and values which are especially important for the kelong because it is an important asset in the formation of character and the identity of the owner of the ritual specifically and certainly Indonesia in general. In conducting research, it uses qualitative methods using several techniques, including field research. When conducting field research, researchers conduct direct observation, in-depth interviews, as well as recording. The results showed that the function of kelong in addinging-dinging rituals was as a means of ratifying the cultural institutions of the Tenro community, as enforcers and supervisors so that the norms of the community would always be obeyed, as an educational tool for the younger generation and of course as a form of entertainment.
