This paper is aimed to reinterpret the ritual of Perang Ketupat based on practical consciousness into reflective consciousness to preserve agricultural tradition. This consciousness could be created by deconstructing the pragmatic materialistic perspective by promoting local knowledge perspective which had been realized in harmony among human, nature, and God (Tri Hita Karana Philosophy). This research applied a descriptive qualitative method and glocalization concept to comprehend tourism practice in Kapal Village.
The research shows that the local people at Kapal Village interpret this ritual as practical consciousness without knowing the function and the meaning of the ritual. It means that ritual is only performed annually as a routine tradition. Therefore, reflective consciousness needs to be nurtured through constructing the community`s awareness of this ritual as a tourist attraction, so that they can get the economic benefit. In other words, tourism becomes a melting-pot producing space of the triple sections among nature, culture and tourism which is called Eco-Cultural Tourism Landscape (ECTL).
