Abstract

This paper aims to investigate the representation of indigenous people in Indonesia in short stories of Bobo children’s magazine by describing what and how indigenous people are represented through diction in the short stories. The paper uses qualitative content analysis to analyse the short stories as texts and to discover the types of indigenous people represented with diction in the stories. The authors found two short stories about indigenous people of Dieng Plateau and Nias. The findings show diction of the stories is mostly informal and colloquial Indonesian and indigenous terms used in the short stories were limited to several words related to places, specific food, names of rituals, instruments of the rituals, and dances. The current research thus has filled the gap by providing findings related to the indigenous diction used in short stories of children’s magazine in Indonesia.
