Konda Sangiang WULAENG

To appreciate the culture Sangihe, you should understand oral literary Sangihe, humanities oral Sangihe is one proof of Sangihe cultural heritage of the past which are still preserved until today. From some of the most Sangihe oral literary legend is the story Gumansalangi.
From this story we can see where Sangihe of the population until the early formation of the kingdoms that became the basis of the formation of a tribe called tribe Sangihe. Acts as resident Gumansalangi first fully reflected in the "Tamo" since Tamo had animates Sangiang Konda birth as the mother of the people Sangihe. Gumansalangi story and the establishment of the kingdom had already written a lot of people even if only in the writings of loose, not in a very complete book.
There are many writings that comes with years of events, but can not be recognized because of all the stories about Gumansalangi, never recorded in the past resulting in confusion. Maybe the full story about Sangihe may be traced in the Netherlands for more scientific certainty mandapatkan and can be recognized by the broader public.
As the proverb says "no cane akarpun so". We as a new generation can no longer wait for "government" to fund research and writing about the history and culture Sangihe is comprehensive. As more people Sangihe "ndak" want to care, than who are called to do dig up cultural treasures.
Gumansalangi figure has been told for centuries in Sangihe through oral stories from generation kegenerasi hereditary. Since the influx of Europeans, Gumansalangi stories were written by the humanists, historians and students of history and culture of other Sangihe in the form of freelance writing.
Gumansalangi story was first translated in December 1993 at Biola University - Los Angeles. Gumansalangi latest story was written by Kenneth R. Maryott, an American who worked as a lecturer in English at Philliphin in a book called "Manga wĕkeng Origin 'u Tau Sangihe". The book was written in three languages
​​namely Sangihe, English and Indonesian language, published by "The Committee For The Promotion Of The Sangir Language, Davao - Phillphiness, 1995. Kenneth acted as an editor, based on the narrative of Mr. Haremson E. Juda. Besides, there are also stories about Makaampo.

Gumansalangi story comes from Sangihe Talaud islands, which told as folklore or folklore. (Folklore is an element of culture from the past that led to the brink of extinction). Many stories that developed in the islands Sangihe about Gumansalangi but the point is about the first inhabitants Sangihe. The problem is who and where Gumansalangi the truth - truth. At any time until the truth would not be possible to find scientific secarah who Gumansalangi. The cause is not found evidence of ancient manuscripts or inscriptions through the writing or provide a snapshot of life Gumansalangi. It occurs also in some other folklore disulawesi north as the story Toar and Lumimuut of Minahasa, stories and his wife Tendeduata Gumalangi sourdough Bolaang Mongondow, a story like this remain a legend.

d. Version to the four

See the delivery of public poetry in various sasalamate Tamo derived from the past, gives an overview of the business Gumansalangi solve the problem and finally get what it wants. About the egg on top of Tamo already be decorated major in the past Tamo sbagai symbol of new life in the story Konda Wulaeng mandated. If the meaning of philosophy is a picture Gumansalangi Tamo and Konda wulaeng then most likely, of several versions of stories above the most corresponding Gumansalangi is the third version.


A. Meaning of the name Sangihe
Sangihe is an area of
​​islands, formerly a part of the archipelago Sitaro Talaud and Islands in the county system. Currently Talaud Islands and Islands Sitaro (Siau, taghulandang, Biaro) apart, and form a new government district Yuang.

east longitude and 2.3 to 5.2 latitude north latitude. Geographically, the Sangihe bounded, north by philliphina marine waters, south of the strait Talise - Minahasa marine waters, west of the Maluku Sea, east of the Sulawesi sea. Sangihe is a volcanic area because it is located on the mountain path that connects the Pacific sirkum philiphina pathway, Ternate, Tidore northern Sulawesi and South Sulawesi. This is evidenced by the existence of such fire gunug awu mountain on the island of Sangihe, karangetang mountain on the island of Siau, space mountain on the island taghulandang space, underwater volcano mahangetang. Sangihe known as Sanger Sangir or by other tribes in northern Sulawesi.

(Sangiress nederlands nederlands Woordenboek meth sangiress registers, Mr.KGFSteller-Ds.WEAebersold). Sangihe words can be sorted from the two words are taken literally as follows: Sangi of Sangiang word meaning Princess Khayangan, IHE or uhe means Gold. (Toponimi, folklore and historical data from the northern border area homeland). Sangi says' can also be found on the island as a place name lapu-lapu philliphiness islands, Africa and India. (Encarta 2007). European sailors called the islands the name Sanguin Sangihe Talaud. Chinese sailors in an expedition led laksaman Ceng Ho Sangihe local call by the name of San Shao. (Iverdixon Tinungki, Tabloid North Zone). In the language Tountembouan, said Sangir means sharpening by using a sharpening stone. A place to hone a sharp object called pasangiran.
Until now the data has not been found exactly since when the word began to be used as a name Sangihe archipelago which includes live Sangihe induced motion. Muhammad Yamin in the Atlas of History is written P. Sangihe as a regional power to sultanate of Ternate in 1677 before submission to the VOC. In other records say that Sangihe is Nusa North. Sangihe and Talaud never be the concentration of forces of Majapahit. The arrival of royal troops in northern Indonesia majapahit Kepl.Talaud especially between the years 1350 until 1365.

C. The ancestors of the islanders Sangihe
Dr. Peter Beltwood from the Australian National University Department of Prae-history museum in collaboration with the office of education and culture represented by Drs. I. Made Sutayasa in June and July 1974 has been conducted excavations dikepulauan Sangihe and Talaud. From the results of excavations found ancient animal tusks and ivory, patterned pottery, flakes, hominid skeleton (in the cave Bowoleba Manalu). This finding suggests that there is life on Sangihe and Talaud since the period of 5000 years ago. (Toponimi, folklore and historical data from the northern border area homeland)
National archaeological team through the halls of archaeological Manado in archaeological research report, "the study settlements and livelihoods of people living past in Sangihe Talaud Sulawesi and north" to get the results that have long there is life on the islands Sangihe and Talaud.
Robert C. Suggs in the book "Island Civilization of Polynesia", (John Secret "Rediscovery Tagaroa", 1975) reveals that from ± 2000 to 1700 BC occurred military political pressure from China and Mongolia northern part of mainland Asia are urging residents in the valley of Mekhong in the area Yunnan (Viet Nam) to move. Residents who live in the valley of Mekhong undergo three kinds of situations, namely: Those who are weak and submissive, mastered and assimilated under civilization, culture and power of China - Mongolia.Mereka weak but holding resistance, destroyed until keakar-roots, so it does not berbekas.Mereka the would not submit forced to leave their homelands and migrate out. Ketepi the South China Sea to the Philliphina, archipelago, through Micronesia and Melanesia to the islands of Hawaii, Easter Island, in Polynesia and New Zealand there is also a way to Madagascar, East Africa.
Periodization dispersion of the population in China due to the above problems can be grouped as follows;
1. Continental riverine Migrations, namely the spread in the area of
​​mainland Asia disektar river mekhong
2. Coastal maritime Migrations, namely the spread in the coastal areas vietnam or china southern waterfront.
3. Insular Maritime migration, namely the spread between islands in the archipelago region of Taiwan, Japan, Philliphines, Indonesia.
4. Insular oceanic maritime Migrations, namely: the spread between islands while the ocean to the archipelago and Madagascar.

Progenitor migration archipelago consists of two stages, namely:
The first migration years 1700 - 1500 BC called the proto-Malay. Stone Migration This brings a new culture / neolitikhum based in Bascon hoabin Indo china. (Culture hatchet shaped and square). Which includes proto-Malay descendants are: Toraja and Dayak tribes. Migration both years 700-300 BC Deutro called Malay culture that brought the metal. Is centered on the Dong Son culture. Which includes descendants of Malay deutro are Javanese and Bugis.
Population Sangihe and Talaud including Polynesian Malay race. Origin of their migration from Northern Mindanao and the other came from Ternate. Sangihe Talaud tribes and tribal nations including Polynesia and most of the tribes included in the Austronesian (Prof. JC Van Erde, in a note about the culture Sangihe-Talaud, Gideon Makamea, 2008).
Sangihe population, can not be determined with certainty its origin. It is estimated that they came from North Sulawesi Philliphina and this is based off of the existing language in Sangihe and Talaud, Philliphina and Minahasa have much in common. (Breuwer 1918; 771, in a note about the culture Sangihe-Talaud, Gideon Makamea, 2008) Population Sangihe himself thought that their ancestors came from the north.
To find out who the ancestors of settlers and indigenous ancestors who can be seen through some of the world race that will show the existence of tribal ancestors sangihe.Ras consisted of Caucasian, Nordic (northern Europe / Germany), Alpin (mostly Europeans), Mediterranean ( Middle East / Arab), Indic (Indian). Mongoloid race consists of, Asiatic Mongoloid (China, Japan, Korea), Malayan mongoloid (Malay), the American Mongoloid (Indians). Consists of the Negroid race, African Negroid (African Negro), Negrito (Native Philiphina). Special Race; Australoid / native of Australia, Polynesia / Pacific nations, Melanesian / Papuan Pacific, Micronesian / Pacific, Ainu / Japanese natives, Dravidian / native of India, Bushman / southern Africa.
Malay race consisted of four tribes, namely: Malaysia, Indonesia, People negrito, and Papua (Encarta 2005). It can be concluded that the native population in terms of ethnic Sangihe, and legend, not the people of Indonesia but is part of the negrito tribes. Physical character of Negrito race are: the eyes are not slanted, dark black skin color, posture average height of 130 cm.
Before the large-scale migration from mainland china, existing residents in the archipelago, namely: Wedoid and Negrito. The remains of the tribe wedoid is: Sakai tribe in Siak, tribal stronghold in jambi, tribal Lubu in Palembang. The remains of an extinct tribe negrito. Negroid race including race africa sub negroid (African Negro) and native negrito Philliphina. Negrito is the name given by Europeans to distinguish the African Negro.
Physical character of the native population in terms Sangihe consists of;

1. Same with the migration of population from the spread of china, a native of Sangihe including the Ras proto-Malayan Malay keturunann Mongoloid or south path.

2. Population Sangihe viewed from the side of the legend means the first inhabitants came from philipine Sangihe. The natives philipine like Aeta tribe, agta included in a special race world which is Ras Negrito.

Based on oral stories that have been handed down terwaris that the ancestors of the Sangihe is Gumansalangi. Gumansalangi awarded Kasili Medellu (prince thunder) and hold up Konda Konda Sangiang Mengkila or wulaeng which means daughter of light.

Cultural heritage PRE HISTORY

Culture is a complication (fabric) in a whole which includes knowledge, belief, art, morals, religion, laws, customs, and other realities and the habits that made human beings as members of society. Culture is one of the characteristics that distinguish between people with binatang.Kebudayaan Sangihe has all the elements - elements of culture that exists.
As from mithology tagharoa, then Sangihe ancient culture began in 3000 BC and ends after the metal saman (archipelago). Mithologi tagharoa is mithology Pacific. Some relics of the Saman Saman ancient stone can still be seen in kepl, Sangihe.

A typology of historic relics in Sangihe, proves that these objects are derived from ancient saman, although to date this has not been known clearly about the function and the age of the object. (Typology is a way to determine the age of cultural property based on its shape. The more simple the older age of cultural objects)

Gong in Sangihe is Nanaungan.
Serves as the musical accompaniment of religious ceremonies saman metal.


Religious life is basically a belief in the belief in supernatural powers, extraordinary or supernatural influence on the lives of individuals and society, even against all natural phenomena. Believing in something as a holy or sacred is the hallmark of religious life. (Busstanudin Agus, Religion in human life, 50.2005).
Human religion for several reasons, namely: Not able mengatasai natural disasters, not able to conserve resources and harmony of nature, not able to regulate human action in order to live peacefully with each other in society.
(Evans-Pritchard, in Busstanudin Agus, Religion in human life, 50.2005)
Confidence is the belief system held by a person or society and become the basis of orientation and behavior. Elements that are usually contained in the trust are: myth, divinity, man, the universe, prayer, mysticism, magic and life goals. (DJ Walandungo, Thesis, Old Islamic stuck and Moaning, 2002).

A. Period Sundeng
Long before the formation of the first empire, the tribe has embraced Sangihe belief system. Sangihe tribal beliefs held in the past can not be ascertained as to what. D. Brillman in his book De Velden Onze zending zending Sangi-en op de Talaud - eilanden explained that until the century - 16 there is a belief system called "Where the trust". Where is the power that stands out, which deviates from the usual power, this power comes a supernatural everywhere (sakti). Public opinion, said that tribal trust Sangihe classified as animism. Animism is a belief to know the existence of spirits and the spirits that inhabit the entire universe. In addition to the above opinion, rates Sangihe past also embracing the cult of fetishes or objects of natural or man-made filled with supernatural powers, if true fetishes, is also homage to the ancient religion Sangihe dynamism. (Dr. Aaron Hadiwijono, Religion proletarian tribe in Indonesia, 2006)
Some opinions about trust Sangihe can be seen through the religious activities of the past. Community Sangihe know some religious rites such as ritual měsundeng. Sundeng not just a religious ritual but as a community in which there is a life of culture and social system that has a relationship with a force that is considered more powerful than the community.
This community is set up a religious leader called Ampuang. Ampuang acts as the highest dignitaries in the community. In carrying out activities assisted by the tatanging ampuang and the bihing. Determination of the position in the community sundeng done through the process of discipleship or bawihingang.
The main activity is the ritual měsundeng menalě or present offerings. At the beginning of the offerings made in the form of human sacrifice sacrifice to the ruler of nature. Ritual sundeng not implemented in each village but implemented in a central place of worship called penanaruang.Terdapat rituals in manganitu sundeng ie, pananaru, mahumu island and a few other places. Largest worship center located in the village district Pananaru Tamako. Sundeng rituals attended by the smallest sundeng community mission of each village. Not all communities have ampuang or tatanging sundeng, mostly from small communities only have a bihing.
Broadly speaking, the procedure of implementation of activities menalě starts from the gathering of community members sundeng through the mission. Sit in a circle based on the position and role in worship activities. Prepare a person to be sacrificed. Ask for directions from the ruler of nature. Once approved ditikamlah one person that has been prepared with a tool called recalled. Believed to be the soul of the victim to another place. Migration of souls through the procession escorted the victim culture such as dance Lide ', sounds of musical instruments oil' accompanied tagonggong and nanaungang. After all the activity is finished, all participants ate together.
Sundeng community believes in the power that exceeds their strength, for that they sacrifice as a form of the relationship between humans and the natural ruler. Power that exceeds human strength in the community sundeng form invisible force or spirit. Strength consists of three elements that distinguished the spirit of the people who worship the Ghenggonalangi, Aditinggi and Mawendo. Ghenggonalangi is domiciled sky-high power that controls all the earth. Aditinggi is the highest on land-based force, which is worshiped by the people - people in the hills. Mawendo is a sea-based force that is worshiped by the people at sea and coastal area.
At sundeng rituals still being run in a community sundeng then comes a ritual called mědaroro. The core of this ritual is to seek and find clues from the ancestral spirits of the dead. This ritual is interpreted by D. Brillman in the book (good news from the lips of the Pacific, translation) as a religious person Sangihe. Medaroro ritual still performed in pananaru until the year 1976 (an interview with the old village pananaru, year 2007), in Manganitu until the 1960s (interview with cpc. Crisp, father of Ulis).
The concept and procedure of the ritual was adapted from the ritual medaroro sundeng including its location. Future locations of medaroro already implemented in the villages in a small community that was once a small community sundeng. What distinguishes between sundeng with medaroro is the offering of human victims are no longer using but using pigs. (Interview with the old village, Nahepese, Bengka, Karatung, Kauhis, 2001 to 2007). Digantinnya human sacrifice with pork, beginning at the time of entry of the euro in Sangihe. At the end of the offerings in ritual offerings offerings medaroro replaced with yellow rice with side dishes. (Interview with cpc. Makamea G., 2007). Meaning the power that is worshiped in rituals medaroro no longer to Ghenggonalangi, aditinggi and mawendo but to Himukudě. In addition sundeng rituals and other rituals medaroro there has ever done in the past Sangihe society as ritual menahulending banua, menondo sakaeng, mendangeng sake, melanise tembonang, Menaka stone, and others.
Ritual stone Menaka (closing the grave with stones) is an ancient ritual associated with the event of death, the ritual was done some time after the burial of corpses. Based on these findings, the stone covering the tomb was taken from so far away from the place of burial because of the location of the old cemetery is located on top bukit.Dilihat of building form, can be identified that are using the cap stone tombs, made on a large stone saman.
Close this tomb stones resemble a stone dolmen.Ukuran ranging from 50 x 50 cm to 100 x 250 cm with a thickness of 5-25 cm.
Heavy stone berfariasi from 50 kg to 700 kg. At the bottom there are 4 to 5 pole stones 40 cm from the top tanah.Ritual Menaka stone shows the social status of society. Which has a stone grave cover most of it comes from the top cover while the graves that have a small stone from the bawah.Berdasarkan narrative of village elders and lapango pananaru, to lift the large stone needs to hire as many as 50 to 100 people who made the relay. on rock, sat a leader who gives perintah.Setibanya in the cemetery there is an indigenous elders who are playing music Tagonggong, at the time of the closing stone tomb began lifted up the hill, frequent fights. After the procession Menaka stone finish, the party was held in the form meberi eat all workers. Sangihe old burial site that has the same construction, using the cover there is a large rock on the beach pananualeng, pananaru, pangalemang, bawuniang lapango.
Conception of the past about the cultural diversity brought so much to see a change with the advent of Tulude ceremony. The ceremony is held once a year sabagai grateful for the existence Ditahun effort that has been passed and refused reinforcements in the new year. At this ceremony shown all forms of culture results Sangihe. Tulude is the largest ceremonial.
The main philosophy of tulude lies in Tamo, where all walks of life can be present without having been invited. In this activity seems the value of togetherness between the government and society, between societies with one another by not distinguishing the status and position in society.
B. Sign in and outside of religious development in Sangihe.
a. Religion of Islam
Islam is a religion that goes beyond the first and developing dikepulauan Sangihe. Before the religion of Islam spread more widely disangihe, was born of a community of religious life of Islam called Islam resembles an old or elderly. Religious activities of this community still believe in and follow the customs of Islam followers of the Koran, such as fasting, to pray, celebrate a few days of Islam based on Islamic religious quran. The religious community has no holy book of Islam as the religion of the Koran. They believe that the old teachings of Islam first spread by someone who later referred to as Mawu Masade. (Explanation of some old Muslims 2003). One of the teachings of their ancestors who seeth fit at guard is: people do not need a high school, because if the high school level can contaminate their faith in God the Almighty (interview with cpc. Manto Kirimang, 2007)
Masade is a 7-year-old boy found in the kingdom during the reign of King Tabukan Dalero. At that time the war between the kingdoms and empires of Islam Lumaugě Tabukan. The cause of war is not an issue of religion but vengeance upon the sultan of ternate sibori who carried off the princess Dalero Maimuna. (Sultan sibori frequent visits to the royal Lumauge). In times of war, masade hide-covered ground in the boat. He was found and raised by Manakabe. Masade study Islam in Ternate and Mindanao and then pass it to the Sangihe. Masade died and was buried in Tubis, Philliphina, some time after his trip to Ternate, Mongondow, and Mecca.
Masade teachings continued by his disciple named Penanging. Penanging make disciples for three people namely Makung, Hadung and Biangkati. The doctrine of three students penanging is what gave birth to three streams of Islamic teachings in the Old. Places of worship religious community was named after the mosque, a tool used to call people to worship using the bell. Prayers held every Friday. Their main doctrine derived from the priest. It is possible the birth of the Islamic religious community of parents is the failure of Islamic da'wah Syi, ah.
While the old religion of Islam is being subjected to pressure from various parties, especially the pressure from his own country, came a savior of the Reverend Don Javirius Walandungo. Through a thesis with the title "Old Islamic stuck and miserable" has opened the eyes of the government to rescue religion from the pressure of his brothers.
To date there is no evidence to confirm the entry of a neighbor when Islamic teachings first in Sangihe. In general, the teachings of Islam into Indonesia by several experts from India, Coromandel, Arabia, Egypt, China and Persia. It is estimated that the teaching that goes into Sangihe through philliphina and ternate.
Islamic teaching in and developing disangihe viewed from two possibilities.

In the past, game music tagonggong serve as a companion activity "me'sambo" or mĕbawalasĕ sambo, gunde and ceremonial dance. Import of cultural influences and cultures have influenced each other is part of the long journey kantari mebawalase culture.
Of oral stories and some folklore about Makaampo Sangihe, gives an overview of proficiency ancestors in poetry and berpantun Sangihe.
