Abstract

This study aims to describe and analyze the patterns, social interactions that occur between the Bugis and Javanese people in South Sangatta sub-district, East Kutai Regency and describe and analyze the media in social interaction between the Bugis and Javanese tribes in the monitoring of South Sangatta sub-district, East Kutai Regency. This research was conducted because of the researcher's interest in the phenomenon that occurred in the research area that social interaction with overseas local communities that led to the Bugis Pinrang tribe with the Javanese community occurred without any conflict. While each group has very large characteristics, social, ability in the fields of livelihood, language and culture. This research approach is a qualitative approach, Hence, it is impossible to separate data collection and data analysis from one another, take place simultaneously or simultaneously and continuously, before, during, and after data collection. The interaction between Bugis and Javanese tribes consists of people, networks of social relations based on occupation, religion, socio-economic and cultural levels, each of which does not stand alone, each other needs and interacts to meet needs. life that makes them unite as a group or society. The Overseas people have more or less mastered the language, Kutai, Banjar and the language of the unity of the Indonesian State, namely Indonesian. These language skills color their ability to communicate and coloring the success of the interaction. In essence, social life consists of an innumerable number of actions and reactions, both between individuals and between groups. The attitude of life that has high tolerance and mutual cooperation which is owned by the interaction between the Bugis and the Javanese is a reflection of local wisdom originating from Java, which is where its own origin today has been gradually eroded and can be destroyed and replaced with the philosophy of modern life. The open attitude of the local population which is the implementation of the values ​​of local wisdom from the local population in daily life and the attitude of interacting with anyone and in love with the environment, not happy with violence being the basic capital of social interaction between the Bugis and Javanese and local residents. Therefore, the social interactions that occur do not differentiate between ethnicities, religions and cultures, thus accelerating the occurrence of cultural marriages (assimilation and amalgamation). The open attitude shown by the local population which is the implementation of the values ​​of local wisdom encourages them to accept anyone who comes to South Sangatta Village, East Kutai Regency, provided that the immigrant must respect the cultural norms of the local population. This encourages the Bugis and Javanese to feel comfortable and quickly learn a variety of agricultural equipment which is work equipment, learn agricultural systems in a new place. Every effort of society to achieve goals certainly requires media that functions to facilitate the achievement of these goals. Likewise with the interactions that occur between the Bugis and Javanese tribes overseas. The occurrence of a social contact does not depend solely on the action but also depends on the response to the action. The social interactions that occur between the Bugis and Javanese tribes and local residents are because each party has something to achieve, be it social, economic, trade, agriculture, plantation, education, culture, politics and security aspects. In communicating or social interactions, both individuals and groups often go through the media (social interaction). Media for social interaction is not always electronic objects or equipment, but can also work, situations, or conditions that create or encourage people to engage in social interaction in the context of clarity, problem-solving, or clarification of a problem or request for information.­
