Abstract


 

The purpose of this study is to see how the Bajawa people apply their customs in modern times as they are today. One of the customs held is matrilineal marriage with idealization occurring in the equivalent caste or social layers. This means whether the people of Bajawa still adhere to the marriage must meet the equivalent caste. The research method is literature study, with main source of literature on Bajawa society culture, news about marriage culture development and other relevant sources. The result of the research shows that the marriage custom of Bajawa people, although adhering to matrilineal, is cross-caste or cross social. Exogamy marriages are also becoming commonplace in modern Bajawa society.
