The results of this study showed that the meaning of local wisdom in do-mooru (weaving) tradition in the Muna tribe consists of (1) identity meaning, (2) social solidarity meaning, (3) politeness meaning, and (4) inheritance meaning. The meaning of identity is represented by kamooru weaved cloth which contains symbols of the wearer's social identity and contains noble values which are one of the identities of the people in Muna Regency. The meaning of social solidarity can be seen in the attitude of the weaving craftsmen who have each other and try to correct the shortcomings in each do-mooru (weaving) process. The meaning of politeness can be seen in the use of kamooru motif according to the social status of the wearer, which is one way to provide education to the community in obeying social norms that should be obeyed. Meanwhile, the meaning of inheritance can be seen from the efforts to continue to maintain the continuity of do-mooru tradition from generation to generation.
