Makna Kawe Kolo R’ete Tengu Sebagai Upacara Perdamaian Masyarakat Kelitembu dan Elemolo di Persekutuan Tana Tobi Watu Bhangu Kecamatan Wewaria Kabupaten Ende
Language is a very important thing for humans. Humans cannot communicate with each other if there is no language. Humans will find it difficult to state their existence if language is not known. In other words, language is something that humans really need. Without language, human socialization activities and other life activities will be paralyzed. Given the important role of language in human life, concern for language especially, in this case Indonesian, as a national language needs to be nurtured and developed (Efendy, 2008: 80).
