Rasulan tradition is a form of traditional culture that is still maintained and preserved by the people of Gunungkidul towards the domination of mass culture that exists today. The efforts of Gunungkidul community maintain the tradition was carried out through various forms of resistance. The forms of resistance are closed resistance and open resistance. The efforts to resist the Rasulan tradition that carried out by the Gunungkidul community cannot be separated from the existence of the initial function of the tradition. The existence of this initial function of the Rasulan tradition is the ritual necessity of the Gunungkidul people as a form of gratitude after the harvest season that arrives and to avoid all disasters. The existence of the Rasulan tradition that is still maintained today is influenced by the role of community agents. In order to reveal the efforts of the agents of the Gunungkidul community in the resistance of the Rasulan tradition to the domination of mass culture, this idea was examined using structuration theory from Giddens. These agents act and have a very big role in bringing the resistance efforts of the Rasulan tradition to the domination of mass culture. These agents have interesting ideas; therefore, the Rasulan tradition still lasts to this day. Therefore, it can be concluded that structuration theory can be used to analyze the resistance of the Rasulan tradition to the gradual domination of mass culture and the influential public agents in detail.
