Abstract

The symbols used in Pangkak traditional uniform are: farmer’s hat, and some colors: white, red, and black. Farmer’s hat is a symbol of honor. Besides it is also used as protection from sun light because most of Kangean people are famers who work in rice field. White color is the symbol of pure soul. Most of Kangean people are religious and they keep their pure soul by closing to God. Red color is a symbol of bravery and the color of blood, they protect their right to get independence with their blood. Black is a symbol of power. It means Kangean people are hard workers. The symbols on traditional song are: magic spell, north hill, and young generation. Magic spell is believed as a prayer to get better outcome of harvest, north hill is fertile land, and young generation means spirit. Kangean people maintain their fertile land with spirit. The symbols on traditional dance are turning around and moving around the leader of ceremony. Those symbols mean unity and respect to the leader in their daily life.
