Naomi Patiung [4] | Simon Sitoto [4]

Abstract: This study aims to reveal local wisdom of the philosophy of tallulolona 'three shoots/sources of life?, involving lolo tau'the shoot/sourceof human life', lolopatouanthe shoot/source of animal life', and lolotananan 'the shoot/source of plant life', the three of which are basic concepts that shape the whole life ofTorajan people. The data in this study were obtained through interview with community leaders who know well the issues being discussed, note taking technique, and documentation studies. They were analyzed descriptively qualitatively to explain the relationship between the three shootss/sources of lifecontaining the local wisdom of Torajan people. The results of the study show that local wisdom in the philosophy of tallulolona is the three nodes of Torajanpeople in relation to the Creator. Lolo tau controls the other two shoots of life where Lolo patuoan can take advantage of Lolotananan. In building their relationship and survival, three of them are governed by rites in which lolo tauas the actor, initiator, and organizer, functions to control these rites for the sake of the survival of three of them in harmony, safety, and peace. There are different values containing in the three shoots/sources of life such as values of appreciation, respect, harmonization, and othersthat must be inherited from generation to generation in the life of lolo tau. These values are implemented in various activities in the form of subject - subject relation, i. e. "brotherly" relation so that they can provide welfare to humans centered on the values of a'pa' tauninna?religiosity? in front of Puang Matua, the Creator.
