The Sangihe language is one of the regional languages of Indonesia that is almost extinct . The decline in the number of speakers and public awareness to use this language in daily communication weakens the vitality of this language. Even so, the Sangihe people who live in the Sangihe Islands and those who live in other areas still maintain some Sangihe traditions, one of which is the use of vocatives in the family. This article is based on vocative research in the Sangihe family, especially those who speak in the Manganitu dialect. From the analysis, it was found that the vocative form used in data is the term kinship and endearment. These vocatives are distinguished by sex, age and level in the family tree. The tradition has been inherited from generation to generation and has undergone some changes, such as the change of rules and forms. These changes are adjustment efforts that aim to maintain the existence of this vocative tradition as one of the identities of the Sangihe people.
