Character education is the inculcation of character values, including knowledge, awareness, and action for students at school. This research aims to analyze the role of Javanese Ethno pedagogy values in character education for junior high school students. This research uses an ethnographic approach. A total of 25 students of SMP N 1 Pageruyung and four teachers, namely Javanese language teachers, PPKn teachers, religion teachers, and social studies teachers, were given treatment for the cultivation of Javanese Ethno pedagogy values. Data collection was carried out by participatory observation, ethnographic interviews with speech event characteristics, and documents. The results show that Javanese ethnopedagogy values have an important role in character education for junior high school students with Javanese culture, that is, apart from being a basic element of character building students as well as an effort to build national identity and filters in selecting foreign cultural influences. Javanese cultural values are easier to internalize, socialize, and enculturate to students because of the cultural attachments that students bring.
