One of the local wisdoms that uphold the equality of women is still seen in the process of building a traditional house or mbaru gendang in the Roko Molas Poco tradition found in the eastern community of Bantengkuwu village, East Nusa Tenggara. Roko means shoulder rite, Molas means beautiful girl, while Poco comes from the mountain. The main pillar or hunchback series used to build the house is symbolized by a beautiful girl or woman. The Roko Molas Poco tradition is the tradition of carrying the best wood (siri bongkok) together from the mountain carried out by people in a village who want to build a traditional house or Mbaru Gendang. This study uses an ethnofeminist approach with a qualitative type of research. The subject of this research is the community in the village of Bentengkuwu, East Nusa Tenggara, the object of which is siri bongkok (main pole) in the roko molas poco tradition. The data collection stage is in the form of interviews, documentation, and literature studies.
