The main problem focused on how the ideology of an agrarian Buginese society reflected through the figure of Sangiang Serri in the “Meong Palo Karellae”. It presented in the massurek oral tradition. The data analyzed was surek “Meong Palo Karellae” text which told about Sangiang Serri. The analysis showed that the figure of Sangiang Serri was a metaphor that represented gender ideology in Buginese people.
