This research aims to explain the structural pressures that have led to the emergence of resistance movement of the Tau Taa Wana against out-groups and also to explain the culture of resistance of Tau Taa Wana as a result of structural pressure. This research uses a qualitative methode with a case study approach. This research was carried out in the Tau Taa Wana Posangke indigenous community in North Morowali Regency, Central Sulawesi-Indonesia. Informants or resources persons were selected purposively. Data collection is carried out through activities such as observation, indepth interview, focus group discussion and library study. To see structural pressure and resistance patterns, descriptive analysis are used to obtain inductive conclusions. The data validation is done through sources and time triangulation. The results showed that the expansion of palm oil plantation by private company and the social violence experienced by Tau Taa Wana became a pressure that encouraged the growth of the resistance movement. This movement is to maintain cultural heritage in the form of customary land and forests. Tau Taa Wana put up resistance framed into symbols and culture of daily resistance. Structural pressure that triggers the emergence of a culture of resistance is the cause of the failure of the state to guarantee the welfare of the Tau Taa Wana as a whole and fundamentally.

Keywords : Social Movement, Tau Taa Wana, Cultural Frame of Resistance.
