• Abstract

    As times change, a shift is observed in the background of economic stories or myths, which are created by social actors under the guise of prostitution as a means to fulfil a wish. The aim of this article is to examine the social structure of society within the Mount Kemukus Ritual Tourism Area. The writing methodology employed is a qualitative ethnographic approach, utilized to analyze findings from the community regarding changes in the structure of society. The subjects involved in this research encompass the community, tourist visitors, tourism services, academics, cultural activists, and relevant research. The research findings reveal that the social structure of society within the Mount Kemukus Ritual Tourism Area is characterised by a growing belief in the myth of the invisible quest for wealth. These beliefs stem from Javanese teachings or traditions, shaping the societal model around Mount Kemukus into a prismatic society. This signifies a societal model whose developmental trajectory is beginning to diverge from the original unified structure, yet has not fully transitioned to the modern divided structure. The orientation towards a prismatic society entails the coexistence of traditional and modern elements that complement each other.
