Abstract

This is a preliminary study about (i) the traditional knowledge of Lampung and (ii) the aspects of traditional knowledge that are embodied in "Sigeh Pengunten," the traditional dance of Lampung. This study aims to throw light on the need to preserve Sigeh Pengunten, especially since it embodies several modes and aspects of the traditional knowledge of Lampung. The study employs a qualitative methodology. Results indicate that Sigeh Pengunten is typically performed to welcome important guests to official events hosted in Lampung. The dance form represents the identity, history, and the philosophy of life espoused by the indigenous people of Lampung. However, current interest in the dance form is limited to the movements alone; therefore, it is important to create awareness about the meaning and the significance of the movements that constitute this dance form. It is also important to prevent the extinction of this dance form. It is especially important to preserve the dance form in its entirety in order to make it accessible to future generations.
