Abstract

The study intends to illuminate the concept of Mamuju’s women beauty in Tolo’na I Ha’dara’s story and depict Ha’dara’s autonomy on her body. This folktale is also one of Mamuju’s oral narratives. It is hardly found that the study of it becomes crucial to preserve the culture represented since oral narratives reflect the civilization in the past. The study is conducted through descriptive analysis to explain that patriarchy was rooted a long time ago. The study finds out that beauty in Mamuju is a metaphor with pineapple shoot, lappa-lappa ‘savory food made of glutinous rice and coconut milk wrapped in coconut’s leaf,’ balurdako,' and swing. Ha'dara has the autonomy of her body since the beauty is utilized to gain her will. However, a woman's weak body is also shown when she could not fight against Ca'bulung and even dies in his hand.
