Tribe my family is Battiness. Battiness culture is still important for Betakes and also my family. A family wants a son in a family to continue the family tree to bring the surname of the family. Tradition of Battiness is not only about family name, but was associated with the wedding culture from Betakes. Batik society, is familiar with the term custom; the term of the king indigenous peoples to show procession.

Upon arrival at wedding hall, the first program was, they carry out “Monoclonal Pass-pass Paragons” or Marriage Blessing. The next program, I saw many people brought Los and sang Battiness songs, after that some people started to Amanda Hat (say something that important to the party).

I shocked, because my mother did not talk to me before. So, I should go and brought Los. I was really happy about that, cause I got money from my uncle, brother and many people that also dancing. After that, I came back to my mother and I say, “Mom I got money and I have three hundred thousand rapid” My mother laugh and said,” you have to good In Narrator, so that you get much money more than this money”.
And we were really happy. When I was a child, I don’t know the ceremony of Battiness, and also never saw them make the ceremony. I really want to know what they do. And now I know the traditional about my own ethnic, and It Is the ceremony from Battiness. My planning, when I get married later, I want to have Battiness traditional for my wedding; cause the ceremony from my ethnic Is a mutual respect to each other and also teach the new bride to do the best for they own family.
