Author : Tanwey Gerson Ratumanan*, Juliaans Marantika, Efilina Kissya

Abstract

Sopi is one of the traditional drinks that contain alcohol and it is consumed by many people in Maluku Province. For people in the Babar Islands Regency of Southwest Maluku, sopi is an important component in their tradition and in many dimensions of life. Sopi is the main component, to foster togetherness or bond of brotherhood. Serving sopi is also a form of appreciation or respect for guests. Sopi is an important instrument in traditional rituals and in solving problems or conflicts. From a study of high school students in the Babar Islands, it was found that 100% of high school students were familiar with Sopi. They knew about its functions, had witnessed and even participated in traditional events involving the use of sopi, and were also aware the impact of consuming Sopi. As many as 29, 17 % of students (all male students) had also taste or drink Sopi. Furthermore 91, 67 % of students agreed that sopi remained preserved as a cultural instrument. The preservation of sopi as an important component of the tradition needs to be continued, besides the serious efforts to overcome the possibility of misuse of sopi, especially among youths in the Babar Islands. Key words: Sopi, Babar Islands Culture, Student Perceptions.
