Abstract:

This study aims to identify the lexical 'hujung' in the philosophy of life of the Bugis in Malaysia. The study focuses on Malay-Bugis, Bugis-based Bugis and Bugis Indonesia as non-citizens. The collected research involved collecting and reviewing the writing and interviews conducted. The document analysis approach was used in this study through content analysis. The findings show that the philosophy of life of the Bugis race is Siri 'na Pesse. This philosophy has become a fundamental foundation that continues to grow in line with the era's circulation. This development made little difference to the life philosophy of the Bugis in Malaysia. The philosophy begins with the word 'hujung'; Hujung Pandang, Hujung Perahu, Hujung Pedang, Hujung Lidah dan HujungZuriat. Each 'hujung' plays an important role in maintaining the true identity of the Bugis in Malaysia. This study is expected to provide information to researchers related to the role of Bugis life philosophy in Malaysia. The philosophy of life is to be maintained as a culture so that the Bugis identity will remain intact.
