Abstract

This study operates the descriptive qualitative method by interviewing, observing, and documenting, as a data collection technique. The purpose of this study is to uncover aspects of religious moderation in the oral traditions of the Bajau tribe in Wakatobi and use it as a database for the development of religious moderation based on local wisdom. The research carried out in Bajau Mola Wakatobi Village found that one of Bajau's oral traditions namely Iko-Iko is a literary genre that contains moral messages, in the integration of religion and culture that every delivery is always able to make the hearts of the listeners' thrill. The dynamic Iko-Iko makes it socially sensitive and can be used as resolution literature. Its contents, among others, encourage balance and respect for fellow human beings, regardless of religion or ethnicity. the concept of moderation for the Bajau in principle has been immanent in their society. His form can be in the form of ‘sabbar dikarimanang ele papu Allah Taala baka Nabi Muhammad’ (patient in the sense of self-control as submission to God and guiding the Prophet), Situluh, Sipagenne, Sipalele (spreading sympathy), and Sikarimanang (spreading affection). The implication of this study is to obtain locality data and information that are full of meaning in the context of the community's oral traditions which can be used as religious moderation teaching materials.
