- Bugis, cultural taxonomy, Hofstede’s theory
- Bugis is a huge society in South Sulawesi. Therefore, Buginese is spread throughout the region of South Sulawesi, and so is the culture. Bugis culture has a strong influence on the people in South Sulawesi, especially on the interaction among the Buginese, and between Buginese or other community. This research aims to explore the Bugis cultural taxonomy in South Sulawesi, particularly in Wajo Regency. In line with the aim, the researchers apply the Geert Hofstede’s theory; thus this research is a descriptive qualitative research method by applying Hofstede's cultural taxonomy approach. The source of the data is Bugis people in South Sulawesi, both male, and female who live in the urban and rural areas. Based on the theory, there are five dimensions of cultural pattern, namely: (1) power distance, (2) uncertainty avoidance, (3) individualism versus collectivism, (4) masculinity versus femininity, and (5) long-term versus short-term orientation to time. The result shows that from the five dimensions of Hofstede’s cultural taxonomy, four are reflected in Bugis culture, namely power distance, individualism versus collectivism, masculinity versus femininity, and long-term versus short-term of time orientation. Meanwhile, one of them, namely uncertainty avoidance, is not apparent to Bugis culture.
