The traditional clothing of the Gorontalo tribe, also known as traditional Gorontalo clothing, is a fashion style unique to people in Gorontalo, Sulawesi. The Gorontalo tribe is the largest population in the north peninsula of North Sulawesi. The traditional clothing of this tribe is recognized by its ornaments and colors. Each color has its meaning and functions, thus adding to the exquisiteness of the clothing. People have made some adjustments to the traditional clothing of Gorontalo, depending on the events. One example is an increase in the number of female Muslims wearing modified traditional clothing. This is seen in the use of hijab to add aesthetic value. There are several designs of traditional Gorontalo clothing; some are worn for special religious occasions, such as weddings, aqiqah (celebration for a new baby), mourning, etc. However, among the traditional clothes, there is one that is quite unique, namely the Bele Uto. This clothing covers the entire body, leaving only their eyes. M. Quraish Shihab's thoughts are unique and moderate. His moderate attitude is seen when finding a middle ground, and providing solutions wisely without patronizing and judging. Such a notion and its relevance with its relevance to Gorontalo's traditional clothing is worth investigating.
