The concept improved by Hu`u society is leka dana which is a form of area-choosing for settlement, space setting, space pattern, building direction and also overall settlement pattern by considering basic physical aspect, society relationship both individual and communal, environmental equilibrium and live engagement of Hu`u society. In this observation, we use qualitative-descriptive method and analysis based on theories which is related to space pattern on settlement area through the data or information which were collected by purposive and snowballing interview techniques toward magnate, religious promoter and social leader, which then we conduct survey and field checking afterward.

Nevertheless, there is land-use shifting that is the settlement area addition which is a residence for new comers that is located outside Hu’u.
