- Many cultures and traditions are endangered and have been extinct. One of them is the Ba’usung tradition. The Ba’usung tradition is one of the traditions in the marriage ceremony of the Banjar tribe that is no longer much done by the younger generation. This research is aimed to elucidate the procession of Ba’usung tradition in the Banjar tribe marriage ceremony in sub-district of Tembilahan Hulu of Indragiri Hilir District. The method used in this research is descriptive qualitative method. In-depth observation and interviews with informants was used to collect the data. The result of the research can be concluded as follows: Ba’usung tradition is held when the groom arrives at the bride’s house, precisely before the bride and the groom sit side by side at the wedding dais, which, in the Banjar tribe, is called batatai. When the groom arrives at the bride’s house, the bride and the groom are carried over the shoulder (Usung means carry) by two people who are trusted as the carrier. While carrying the bride and the groom over their shoulder, these two carriers perform silat (traditional martial art forms). After this procession, the bride and the groom are welcome to the wedding dais. The meaning of Ba’usung traditional ceremony is as a test for the groom before facing household affairs and his responsibilities towards his family, wife and children in the future.
