Each local community is an important part of several cultural research objects in Indonesia. This research tries to reveal the existence of several traditions of local cultural values which are still maintained by the Tombulu sub-Ethnic community in Walian village; as well as the background of the local community; while still maintaining and preserving these traditions and culture. The approach used in this research was a qualitative descriptive approach by using participatory observation and in-depth interviews. Some traditions that have been maintained until now are the tradition of gratitude/thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is a phenomenon; because of its virtue. For the Tombulu sub-ethnic community; thanksgiving for what is given by nature is believed by the Minahasa people as a gift from the Creator as the Preserver of the Universe that should be grateful. This tradition was created; as a form of offering part of the harvest as part of Opo Wananatas. Another tradition is Mapalus. This tradition is a traditional system of mutual cooperation with the procedure of cooperation in rotation by each member for the public good. Mapalus activity is a shared awareness to work; think; et cetera. The Maengket dance tradition is performed to enliven the harvest ceremony as an expression of gratitude and joy towards God Almighty for the harvest they got. The background of Community still maintains traditions and culture in the Tombulu sub-ethnic; because they are considered as ancestral heritages; which must be maintained. The tradition of thanksgiving; mapalus; Maengket is considered as an identity for the Minahasa ethnic community; especially the Tombulu sub-ethnic group which is believed to have cultural meanings and values behind its implementation. The meaning and values are no other than as a form of gratitude to God Almighty for every providence and guidance in daily life.
