Abstract

Central Sulawesi folklores are full of moral teachings. They can be used as a learning media in strengthening character building. This study aims to describe the values of local wisdom contained in the folklores of Central Sulawesi. The method used in this research is the descriptive analysis method. The data of this research are three stories of Central Sulawesi folklore, namely (1) The Origin of Bamba Limo Toaya, which depicts the local wisdom of the Kaili tribe in Central Sulawesi, (2) Kapal Bangga Kaasan, which depicts the local wisdom of the Tolitoli tribe in Central Sulawesi, and (3) Lengkatuwo Sang Tadulako, which depicts the local wisdom of the Bada tribe in Central Sulawesi. The three folklores were the winners of the 2018 Central Sulawesi Folklore Writing Competition held by the Language Office of Central Sulawesi. The result of this study indicates that the folklore of Central Sulawesi has very diverse local wisdom values, including the values of simplicity, patience, persistence, solidarity, hard work, harmony and brotherhood, politeness, affection, deliberation, trustworthiness, justice, gratitude and respect, helping each other, courage and confidence, wisdom, independence, commitment and integrity. The values of local wisdom contained in the folklore of Central Sulawesi are in accordance with the values of character building. This shows that the folklore of Central Sulawesi, which has various values of local wisdom, needs to be preserved and revitalized so that it can be passed on and taught to the young generation as the basis for the building of the nation’s cultural character.
