Abstract
This study aims to explore the moral messages and values of the local wisdom of the Samin community in Sukolilo, which is manifested in the mbrokohi ritual activities, the Samin community's rice harvest. Technically, the data is collected through direct observations in the field, open ended interviews, structured and semi-structured interviews to key informants; and focus group discussions. This study was designed with a typical interpretative qualitative research, in addition to applying the Semiotics research methodology. It is an analytical method for studying signs and meanings. The data was collected through the technique of recording and taking notes done in interviews, textbooks, and documentation or references related to the results to be achieved in this study. The results of this study show that the mbrokohi rite as a celebration ceremony for the Samin community's rice harvest manifests the interaction of the Samin community with their neighbourhood, where it is very strong and inseparably integrated. Traditionally, through the mbrokohi ritual which is loaded with moral meanings and messages (eco-ritual), the Samin communities undergo natural teaching (eco-doctrinal) in preserving the natural environment symbolized in the mbrokohi rice harvest ritual. The meaning and moral message in this cultural practice reflect the values of local wisdom fundamental to concerning the life and daily living of the community, namely by respecting and maintaining, caring for crops and rice harvests which represent the natural environment as a "fellow" human (eco-praxial). These community life-views reveal their wise attitude towards nature which further fosters harmony and affection between humans as living things and the universe. Therefore, between humans and nature should proceed to lead a balanced life which all leads to salvation „selametan’.

Key words: mbrokohi; ritual; meaning; Samin community; symbols
