name of culture and tradition in Nias, one of which could I introduce through this post is a stone jump, which is one of the most popular traditions on Nias island.
The tradition of stone skipping has been made since the time of the ancestors, where in ancient times often happen inter-tribal wars that the young adults who have trained themselves to be strong and able to penetrate the opponent's castle which is said to be high enough to jump over.
Once famous jump tradition this stone makes this tradition was immortalized in a thousand rupiah denominations in the early 1990s with a picture of a man of Nias, which was jumping the stone monument.Until today this tradition still exist in the middle of modern culture that increasingly squeeze. Hopefully we can preserve this culture to be proud to our nation.
