Abstract: This study aims to reveal the religious values of the massempe tradition of Bone society in Sulawesi Selatan. This research is a qualitative descriptive research using phenomenology approach. Observations and interviews were utilized in data collection. The results indicate that massempe tradition of Bone society is a form of gratitude for the harvests that have been obtained. This tradition is done by kicking each other's legs between one participant and another participant who is mediated by two referees. This activity is done without any anger and resentment even though his legs could have been swollen, sprained, and injured because it is considered as entertainment. Its entertainment level is similar to the pleasure when singing or dancing. Despite an entertainment, this tradition teaches the religious values to the younger generation. Among the religious values is to be grateful for the blessings of Allah, sharing the sustenance, and forgiving each other. Finally, this study confirms that the religious values contained in massempe tradition are in line with the concept of panggaderreng of Bugis society as the highest social law in society.
