Abstract

This research aims at describing the meaning of the mantra text of Mambang Lukah Menari tradition using a semiotic approach that proposed by Riffaterre. It is based on two reading stages: heuristics and hermeneutics. The research data were obtained using purposive sampling method that conducted through observation, interview and documentation techniques. The results showed that in the heuristic reading, structurally, the Mambang Lukah Menari mantra text begins with the reading of basmalah, which reflects the teachings of Islam in Malay culture, namely strengthening faith and devotion. In the hermeneutic reading, the meanings of the Mambang Lukah Menari tradition mantra text reflect social culture such as strengthening the social system of the society, harmonizing behaviour towards the environment, strengthening the solidarity of the local society, and as a manifestation of social welfare.
