Ethnomedicine studies have been carried out on traditional medicinal plants of the Muna tribe in Bungi Village, Kontunaga District. Ethnomedicine studies have an important role in the discovery and development of chemical compounds potentially as drugs derived from natural ingredients. This study aims to describe the use of traditional medicinal plants of the Muna tribe in Bungi Village which includes efficacy, usage dosage, parts used and processing methods. This research is an observational descriptive research with data collection techniques, namely observation and interviews with 3 traditional healer people. The results showed that there were 39 types of plants efficacious as traditional medicines which were divided into 24 families that had been utilized by the Bungi Village. These plants can be obtained in the garden and the forest. Leaves are part of the plant that is most widely used in medicine as much as 51 %. How to process plants as medicinal ingredients are boiled, soaked, kneaded, chewed, pasted, pounded, crushed, shredded and dripped. Boiling is the most widely used method.
