This study aims to reveal the symbolic meanings and values implied in the ritual speech of Pattomateang ceremony of Towani Tolotang community. The research was conducted in Amparita Village of Sidrap Regency. The informants were the people who knew well the subject matters related to the topic of discussion. The data were obtained through observation, note-taking, and recording which were transcribed and then translated into English. They were analyzed qualitatively descriptively using anthropolinguistic theories to reveal the symbolic meanings and values depicted in Pattomateang ritual ceremony. Based on the data analysis, the research results reveal that the symbolic meanings implied in Pattomateang ceremony are related to the invocation of the community represented by Uwatta or Uwa to God through Dewa Seuwae so that they can inhabit the Linoe (earth) peacefully and prosperously as depicted in some utterances performed by Uwatta or Uwa. Besides, they also imply moral values and local wisdom related to human life.
