Abstract

This work is devoted to the analysis of the legends of Ki Lapidin, Ki Asmidi, and Ki Samidin in
Subang, West Java. Recently, the term called character education has become a rising issue in
schools, and it has slowly but surely begun to show its importance in the curriculum. The character
of Ki Lapidin is regarded as a personal role model of kindness, responsibility, dignity, fairness and
honesty to the society. Even thoug he was a heroic outlaw in Subang, he is always portrayed as
"robbing from the rich and giving to the poor", he was a freedom fighter opposing oppressive of
the Dutch. In our research we were guided by a set of theoretical and empirical methods of
research. To obtain interpretive glosses of the communicative material we used ethnographic
methods. The result shows that Ki Lapidin Ki Asmidi, and Ki Samidin are representation of fighter,
who fought for the right in their own way. They are symbol of integrity of people.
