Abstract
The existence of Samin tribe community still becomes a great concern to study. As its identity is unique, independent, and specific in local genius, Samin community is rich in studies with sociology and anthropology perspectives or social anthropology field. This research depicted the animism and religius symbols of thanksgiving ceremony of Samin Jepang community, Margomulyo District, Bojonegoro Regency. Samin Jepang Margomulyo is different from other Samin communities in some cities such as Blora, Kudus, Pati, etc. The main distinction is on the existence of Mbah Hardjo Kardi who is sacred by Samin convention as the indigenous leader of Samin generation 4. Since the research aimed at understanding Samin community, the framework for analyzing data employed constructivism theories such as phenomenology, symbolic interaction, and social reality construction. The research method was ethnography, while the data collection technique involved participant and non-participant observation, in depth interview, and document analysis. The data analysis used the stages of description, analysis, and interpretation. The research result indicated that the religious system of Samin community is pantheism or a blend between Animism, Hinduism, and Islam. In short, Samin belief is Saminism or spiritualism. To connect to God, offerings through thanksgiving ceremony are used as mediation. Samin precept on the symbols of thanksgiving ceremony is very pragmatic, practical, and flexible. The most important things in Samin belief (interpretation given by Mbah Hardjo Kardi as the main informant) are the intention and willingness to conduct thanksgiving ceremony, not on its facilities.
