In presenting the research results in this paper, using ethnographic methods and Levi-Strauss myth analysis. The object of research is the art of Alu Katentong at a wedding ceremony in Padang Laweh Village, Sungai Tarab, Tanah Datar, West Sumatra. The results showed that Alu Katentong is a manifestation of the strong position of Minangkabau women who are adherents of matrilinealism. And as a medium of entertainment and communication to the community, it contains the meaning of the philosophy of Alam Takambang Jadi Guru, the philosophy of Adat Basandi Syarak, Syarak Basandi Kitabullah as the basic values of the Minangkabau community. The results of the study, firstly, the myth of rice in the mortar is so that those who will get married quickly get offspring, with the meaning that humans learn from the science of rice, as a symbol of happiness, offspring, and sustenance. The meaning of rice is also of educational value for religious values. Second, the myth of Sipakak Pambao lasuang, the myth that if Alu Katentong is not present in his marriage, his son will be deaf, which means an allegory, satire and strategy so that this art is preserved and still loves one’s own culture. The meaning of the myth is also worth the love for the homeland.
