BELITONG TRADITIONAL CULTURE TO CATCH FISHES

Nirok Nanggok is a Belitong traditional culture to catch fishes by local in a large group during the dry season. This tradition must follow the rule that is instructed by The dukun (Magic Man) because this event is very sacred considering that the river or the place where the nanggok will be done, is a magic guard, therefore if the dukun has not given an order, the nanggok credit cannot be started.

Nanggok is derived from the name of the tool used, namely Tirok and Tanggok. Tirok is a kind of wooden stick (usually used from Pelawan trees) about 1cm in diameter, the length varies from about two to four meters, the base of the spear is made of iron without hooks. while Tanggok is a net that is mounted on a rattan frame that is formed in a rectangle or other form. The great meaning of this tradition is a sense of family, cohesiveness and preserving the environment.
