The Kingdom of Siang

In the second period, in line with the more distant shoreline due to the deposition of river of “Siang” as the main access into the city, and the move to a Gowa Malay merchant colony on the west coast, even up to Suppa and Sidenreng in the central plains of South Sulawesi make Siang lost its main function as a port important, coupled meredupnya influence political center. Until here, no different fate Siang Bantaeng, exist but are under the shadow of power control Gowa-Tallo.

Center of “Kingdom of Siang” was originally grown thanks to the natural resources: marine, forest products and minerals and rice fields may be exploited by a population of Makassar, which has long recognized the vast sea trading network by utilizing the estuary of the river as the main communication access.

The frequency of contacts with other communities bring about change in economic patterns, especially after knowing wet rice cultivation technology (rice field) and enable the transition of economic activities to the hinterland with the opening of forests to increased production of rice as a main commodity.

Tome Pires noted that one year after the fall of Malacca (1511), the islands of Macacar (Makassar) is the place – a place that is bound in the inter-island trade network. Although Pires, Macacar suspect that trade is less important, but since then, already offers a direct route to the Moluccas with the coast – south coast of Kalimantan and Sulawesi; an alternative to the traditional route through the northern coast of Java and Nusa Tenggara islands.

But we have to wait until mid-sixteenth century, to find a picture of South Sulawesi, that since travel Antonio de Paiva (1542-1543) and Manuel Pinto (1545-1548) to the west coast of South Sulawesi. Tome Pires refer to rice as a main product Macacar. And in fact, recently been Portuguese sailors will have a special impression fertility countries of South Sulawesi is famous for its forest products, rice and other food. (Cortesao, 1944 in M Ali Fadhillah, 2000).

Colonial milestone in Gowa in 1667 also impacted strongly on the afternoon. Defeat Gowa face-Bone Dutch alliance also means the defeat of the dynasty and resurgence of Gowa Barasa dynasty that supports Palakka Whitewater. I Johoro Pa’rasanya Tubarania rise as local authorities, I Joro also dubbed Lo’moki Ba’le (ruler of the opposite), since he returned from overseas (Java and Sumatra) follows the Whitewater Palakka mission to the country west of the archipelago.

History of  Lombassang (Labakkang) becoming known after the economic decline of political prestige “Siang”.  Ruler Labakkang helped subdue the kingdom of Gowa Barasa, dynastic successor in Pangkajene after “Siang”. 

After losing to Holland Gowa (1667), Gowa Labakkang out of and into the VOC control before becoming the administrative area Noorderpprovincien, then become Noorderdistrichten the administrative control of the Netherlands is based in Fort Rotterdam (Benteng Jumpandang).

Somba Labakkang when it was accompanied by members of indigenous Bujung Tallua, the ruling political and territorial unit itself, namely in Malise, Mangallekana and Lombasang, before more complex with the merger of other small rulers.

The political system of the Kingdom of Gowa adopted against the country – it is putting the country conquests Ana ‘Karaeng Bate, Bate-bate’a commonly called). then followed by the Kingdom of Gowa family marriage, at its peak afternoon into the country the Kingdom of Gowa royal family could no longer be separated until the year 1668. Until now no single source to ensure the life history of the kingdom until conquered the kingdom of Gowa – Tallo. Noon under the hegemony of the Kingdom of Gowa government around 1512 to 1668.

Culture system that characterizes the life of society is the tradition of cultural of “Siang” Gowa, particularly concerning the relationship of marriage between the king and royal family Gowa. Noon rulers have family connections with the royal family Luwu, Soppeng, Tanete, and Bone because the kingdom of Gowa family also entered into a marriage relationship (breed) between the Kingdom Luwu family. Then Luwu breed with Soppeng, Soppeng breed with Tanete and breed with Tanete Bone.

In summary, offspring mating system products, “kawin mawin” it has wider kinship relations. Day and several units of political territories like Barasa (Pangkajene), Lombasang (Labakkang), Segeri, Ma’rang and mating mawin Segeri also held between the royal family. 

Barasa affiliated Gowa, Bone and Soppeng. Similarly Ma’rang and Segeri. Medium Labakkang with Gowa, although initially Labakkang a royal – King Luwu, Soppeng and Tanete. Tradition breed which is why society has to unite Pangkep blood in the shape of the Bugis Makassar .
