Abstract
Indonesia is one of the multicultural countries in the world and is a great nation with its cultural diversity. This diversity is the potential and uniqueness of Indonesian nation. However, the potential and uniqueness are recognized or can cause various problems. Corruption, collusion, nepotism, separatism, robbery, violence, political feud, bullying, poverty, environmental destruction, and the diminution of nationalism and solidarity values are the real problems as well as parts of these diversities. These factors are also the background of the writing of this paper. Multicultural integration in social studies learning needs to be necessarily made as an effort to build the character of Indonesian. Multicultural integration in social studies can be done through inserting multicultural material and made it as a teaching supplementary material. Multicultural integration is carried out through the application of social science concepts based on the diversity utilization that exists in society, especially in students such as ethnic diversity, gender, social status, abilities, language, religion, age, and race. Multicultural integration can be done through cultural values of Pancasila approach. Cultural values of Pancasila approach with the motto "Bhinneka Tunggal Ika" must become the basis of multicultural integration. This approach is regarded as an effort to build the character of Indonesian for the next generation. The character of Indonesian becomes a marker of Indonesia that has a distinct identity with other nations.
