Abstract

Proverb is a cultural heritage that became one of the enrichments of Indonesian literary works. Similar to other types of literary works, proverbs contain moral values that are believed to be a vehicle of character education for youth learners. The purpose of this study is to analyze the ethical values in proverbs as a material and means of character education. This study uses qualitative descriptive method, which is a series of activities or data collection process through document analysis / literature study. The expected result of this study is to document the ethical values in the proverb as character education. The values studied are the nine basic values plus one religious value is upheld the nation of Indonesia: responsibility, respect, justice, courage, honesty, nationalism, self-discipline, caring, and perseverance. Example of findings: 1) There is age, there is sustenance (ada umur, ada rezeki) = as long as ther is life sustenance God there is; 2) The same weight bears, the same light portable (berat sama dipikul, ringan sama dijinjing) = hard to live together; 3) there is water there fish (ada air ada ikan) = wherever people try there must be sustenance. Ethical values according to those proverbs are that about religious, caring, and perseverance. In addition to the proverb which states the based value in positive, there is also a proverb that states the value in a negation. Example, there I was faced, no I was looked at behind (ada aku dipandang hadap, tiada aku dipandang belakang) = when in the presence of being nice, but behind others word. These examples are expected to be character education materials for students and can provide improvements for their ethics.
