Abstract
The study of megalithic not only focuses on the physical artifacts of large stones only. The stones are meaningful, because they are given meaning and get a certain treatment through ritual due to the values shared and respected by those who believe. In some cases, the megalith remains attached to myths which tend to be declared sacred. The symbols of megalithic tradition in Ternate-Tidore Island is a form of cultural facts above. Through the paradigm of phenomenology, this study observed socio-cultural life that goes on and looked at the activities of megalithic traders in defining their world. Observations conducted found 99 (ninety nine) sites of living megaliths. The remaining culture found show the strong megalithic tradition characterized by erect stones (menhirs) and flat stones, known as Jere. From the deepening process it is known that Jere tradition is an individual and community consciousness towards what they believe to be the embodiment of respect for life. The belief and respect of the people in both islands toward the past, the present, and the hope of the future is their perspective on the reality of the natural and supernatural world.Jere is a worship site in the world which aims for the good of life, for the achievement of perfection of life together. Jere is a public religion that covers the minds of people in both islands.
