This paper aims to investigate Onang-Aonang, an Angkola Mandailing oral tradition viewed from culture, local wisdom and education perspectives. This research was the combination of library and field research. The research applied qualitative descriptive method supported by documentation, interview and focus group discussion (FGD). The text of Onang-onang uttered by the old during Manortor ( a traditional dance performed at wedding ceremony) was selected as the main data and the attributes used (colored flags, musical instruments, and clothes) were treated as the additional data. The main data next was translated into Bahasa Indonesia (Larson, 1998) and then was analyzed in order to find out the local wisdom values (Sibarani, 2012) and the character education concepts (Muchlas and Hariyanto, 2011) by correlating them with the additional data. The research found Onang-onang represented three main perspectives; the culture itself (custom and kinship system), local wisdom values (obedience, equality, respect, being humble, togetherness and carefulness) and education concepts (preserving tradition and the family role).
