Bajo is a tribe that lives in the sea. The interaction pattern of the Bajo is on the sea which is the source of their life. The nomadic lifestyle (wandering or moving) made the Bajo feel a real change in their cultural life. The tribes who have a life with the sea since a long time ago, are scattered in eastern Kalimantan, Sulawesi, Nusa Tenggara, to the southern Philippines now. In anthropological or cultural literature, there are various theories regarding the relationship between language and culture. In terms of language, the Bajo tribe uses the Sama-Bajau language. The Sama-Bajau language is the name for the language used by the Bajo people, especially in the coastal areas of the eastern Indonesian archipelago. The object of research in this paper is flora and fauna from the perspective of the Bajo language in the Kolaka region of Southeast Sulawesi. The data relating to flora and fauna were collected using descriptive qualitative research methods. It was found that a few numbers of flora and fauna in the perspective of the Bajo language, dominantly use the letter ‘H’ in their lexical expression and often absorb the language of the neighbouring tribes who live side by side with it, namely: Bugis, Makassar and Tolaki.
