Abstract

The specific purpose of this research is to explain the existence of Ekasila values initiated by President Soekarno before the establishment of Pancasila as the state ideology of Indonesia. Ekasila is an idea that is inspired by the maritime life of the Indonesian people who is then used as a picture of the real personality of the Indonesian people. This type of research used in this research is descriptive qualitative, while the approach uses a qualitative approach with descriptive methods. The First result show that the acceptance of the Pancasila ideology as the sole ideology of the Indonesian nation does not diminish the values of Ekasila that exist in the life of Indonesian society. Second, the existence of elder community leaders in the community encourages people to continue to practice the values of Ekasila in social life. Third, the existence of Ekasila values is contained in the local wisdom of the life of the Indonesian people, especially in customary activities and beliefs.
