and spiritually systematically in examining a culture which will then be studied regarding the elements of benefits and objectives as the basis for preserving and maintaining a culture so that it remains able to adapt in the future, bearing in mind that the development of science will become the foundation and reference for individuals in the future in doing things . Data collection methods in this study are observation, interviews and
documentation. The results of this study indicate that in essence the culture of Ussul and pamali does not
conflict with religion , but the culture of Ussul is directly proportional to religion. As seen in the concept of Ussul
culture, it is always associated with prayer, hope in God. Meanwhile, as humans, what we always do is pray to
God, but we propose the same thing as praying in a different version.
