- The heterogeneity of Lampung sets this province to be a multilingual province reflecting the plurality of Indonesia. Somehow, this condition affects the maintenance of indigenous language in Lampung. The aims of this research are to describe the language trajectory in multilingual areas of Lampung and to describe the language planning which should be implemented in Lampung. The approach used for this research is qualitative research. To collect the data, researcher used triangulation (observation, interview, and questionnaire). After analyzing the data, the researcher found out that Javanese language's speakers dominate the use of indigenous language in Lampung. Moreover, some partiipants of this research admitted that they found it hard to speak in Lampung Language although they were born and grew up in Lampung as well. A well-prepared language planning should be implemented in maintaining Lampung language as the indigenous language in Lampung.
