Teti Feriyani, Erlina Rufaidah, Pargito Pargito


The Lahat people are one of the people who are very obedient to customs. Adat is something that must be adhered to firmly. Even though the Lahat people are far from their hometown, they still maintain and also preserve their cultural customs. One of them is the philosophy of Seganti Setungguan. The purpose of this study was to determine the implementation of the philosophy of seganti setungguan among overseas communities in Bandarlampung. The method used in this research is the descriptive qualitative research method. The approach used in this research is ethnography. The research location is in the city of Bandarlampung, this location was chosen as a research location because there are Lahat people who live and live in Lampung Province. So that researchers can see facts or realities in society that have these characteristics. The results showed that the Lahat people who were overseas continued to carry out and preserve the philosophy of the Lahat by forming an association of Lahat people. The form of implementation of the philosophy as a wavering is carried out in the form of joyful activities such as weddings, then mourning activities, such as death and calamities, then educational activities, and religious activities. The implementation of this philosophy is as much as a striving, indirectly forming mechanical social solidarity that binds fellow Lahat people overseas due to the feeling of coincidence, helping, and caring for others.
