The birth of Pringsewu district which is a transemigrant area on the island of Sumatra signifies the emergence of a new political movement characterized by ethnicity. Pringsewu Regency was born by ethnic immigrants without any community friction that led to violent conflict. Pringsewu Regency, which used to be a transmigrant area, was able to transform into an area that could be seen as a political identity owned by the Javanese. Therefore, the ability of ethnic Javanese who are transmigrants in building their own administrative area at the district level is interesting to study in the academic realm. The aim is to provide an overview of the success of ethnic Javanese in gathering political movements, so that they can establish Pringsewu district without physical violence. This study uses a qualitative method with a case study approach. This study results that the transformation of the Javanese ethnic movement in building and establishing Pringsewu Regency is an integrative form of Javanese ethnic political identity. Integration is created through social exchanges carried out between ethnic groups, especially Javanese and Lampung ethnic groups. Therefore, the birth of Pringsewu district is a manifestation of the transmigrant community movement in the transmigration area through the community integration instrument formed through social exchange.
