Sirri na Pesse: Navigating Bugis Identities in Singapore

Sirri na Pesse: Navigating Bugis Identities in Singapore
Sharing is caring!

Sirri na Pesse, which loosely translates to ‘Honour and Pride’ in the Bugis language, features the history and development of the Malay-Bugis community in Singapore, many of whom can trace their roots through seminal historical developments in the Malay world during the 18th to 20th centuries.

Whether of royal descent, or born to nomadic seafarers or merchants, the local Malay-Bugis community continues to maintain their distinct cultural heritage whilst establishing a modern Bugis identity unique to their Singapore experience.

Sirri na Pesse is the fourth instalment in the Se-Nusantara (Of the Same Archipelago) series of exhibitions that rediscover the rich multi-ethnic heritage and culture of the Malay community in Singapore.

Venue: Malay Heritage Centre, Galleries 1 & 2
Date: 14 October 2017 – 24 June 2018
Tuesday – Sunday , 10 am – 6 pm (Last admission at 5:30 pm)

Free Admission.
