13.00-15.00 WIB


Lampung has 2 tribes = Saibatin Tribe and Pepadun Tribe


Ayu = from Pepadun Tribe

For this concept only focus with Pepadun Tribe.

In the Lampung Pepadun tribe, there is a very large event or procession, namely Begawi Cakak pepadun.

Begawi Cakak Pepadun


- The biggest Lampung Pepadun Cultural ritual to get a title in Lampung Pepadun custom.

- the implementation of begawi is carried out for 7 days 7 nights

- carried out at the same time as the wedding procession

- only people who are mentally and economically capable of carrying out begawi.


some processions in Begawi Cakak Pepadun is:

Ngakuk Muli

Sujud Balak Nettagh Cawoan Dipek Sabai

Ngedio Pemandei Rasan

Pekughuk Temui Agung

Malam Cangget

Turun Mandi

Etc....


But for this process, I just focus with Malam Cangget or Cangget Night

because cangget night is peak night, joy, togetherness, a procession that is eagerly awaited by guests, families, and the society.

Cangget night : featuring dances of girls and boys descended from kings, as well as dances of kings.

I have question , why in this process there is no dance for married women?

why do mothers only accompany their daughters or only sons who dance?


_______________________________________












One of the rules in the Lampung Pepadun Culture is :

After marriage, women can not dance again, it is customary rules from Lampung Pepadun culture, because there is a perspective that married women are no longer appropriate to show themselves to the public other than for their husbands. and this is closely related to the concept of muslim / islam.

but I don't want to enter this concept from a religious perspective, I'm interested in seeing and focusing on the experiences, feelings and perspectives of mothers or married women about this situation.

28-05-2022 will come to Cangget Night Procession to interview married women and mothers about their feelings, experiences and views about the absence of dance for married women on cangget night.

I will interview women of different ages.
