Abstract
There are various traditional ceremonies in the world, one of which is the rambu solo’ ceremony
in Tana Toraja, Indonesia. Rambu solo’ ceremony is a death ceremony which consists of several forms, namely
tedong tungga', ditallung bongi, dilimang bongi, dipitung bongi, and rapasan. The higher the choice of
ceremony form, the greater the cost for the ceremony. In this article, the problem that is being discussed is the
impact of the rambu solo’ ceremony on the welfare of the people in Tana Toraja. The purpose of this study is to
analyze the impact of traditional ceremonies on welfare. This research uses a qualitative approach. Informants
were chosen purposively, namely the traditional leader, Aluk Todolo figure, Christian figure and community
members who had carried out the rambu solo’ ceremony. Primary data obtained through observation and indepth interviews. Secondary data were obtained from books, journals, and written sources produced by the
researchers of the rambu solo’ ceremony before this. The results showed that traditional ceremonies had positive
and negative impacts on welfare. Choosing the form of rapasan ceremonies based on social status has a
negative impact on economic aspects. However, in a global perspective, the local culture has a positive impact.

Key words: Socio-culture impact, Rambu Solo’ Ceremonies, Toraja
