Sinandong Batolurlah Kau Sinangin is a product of oral tradition in Tanjungbalai which serves as the medium for transmitting cultural values like poems, mantra, and others. This oral tradition is sung with affection, love, heartache, sorrow, etc. Sinandong is rich in didactic values that have not been revealed much to the public. This study, therefore, aims to describe the depiction of nature or the environment presented in the text. Employing ecocriticism as the tool for analysis, it can describe the ideology of the text. The result reveals that Sinandong contains some values related to nature conservation in its lyrics. This implies that teachers, parents and community members need to play their roles in maintaining this local wisdom in their daily life.
