THE BELIEF SYSTEM OF THE PEOPLE OF KAJANG: A PERSPECTIVE IN RELIGION ANTHROPOLOGY Sistem Kepercayaan orang Kajang dalam Perspektif Antropologi Agama

Basrah Gising


Indigenous peoples of Kajang is an indigenous community that inhabit Kajang subsdistrict in Bulukumba
regency in South Sulawesi province. They adopt a belief system that called Jenne'Talluka'and Sambajang
Tattappu. Jenne talluka means ablution water that never canceled, while sambajang tattappu means
always remembering the God almighty one
Kajang Indigenous peoples, especially those inhabited inside kajang (inside Embayya) still embrace and
keep up the belief system as mention above until now. Almost all of them do not carry out and shari'aand
the pillars of the Islam: uttering syahadat (confession) words, establishing prayer five times and
the Sunnah, fasting in Ramadan month, contribute to zakat, and fulfilling hajj worship.
I use the Anthropology of Religion approach to study the belief system of such Kajang community.
Through this approach, I will be focusing on a system of worship and religious behavior of Kajang indig-
enous peoples.
