REVEALS THE LEGEND OF THE ORIGIN OF RAJA AMPAT
Raja Ampat is one of the most exotic islands in the world. Do you know what the history of the origin of Raja Ampat is?
The origin of Raja Ampat cannot be separated from the indigenous tribes who inhabit the largest island in Raja Ampat, Waigeu. Namely the Maya.
Maya tribe is the name for the native tribe of Raja Ampat. Married from the word mam and yes which means, the real father is I. The virtual tribe originating from bay mayalibit means room or room. Room for virtual people. The virtual people have not come out from the interior to the coast until the 19th century.
Nobody lives on the beach. They live in forests and mountains. They live in a simple roof house. Then came the Biak people, were explorers in the sea. The emergence of ethnic groups makes the new virtual people go down to the beach to know the boat more clearly. Then fishing rods that were originally just a kind of rope or thread from a genemo tree made them increasingly know fishing tools,
Until now this indigenous tribe of Raja Ampat still lives on Waigeu island. But they did not live in Waisei, which was the capital of Raja Ampat Regency, the virtual tribe chose to stay in the interior.
The story of the origin of Raja Ampat is inseparable from the story of the emergence of kings from the virtual tribe.
So in the bay of Kabui in not far from Waigeu, there used to be the appearance of mysterious kings of 7 eggs. Until now the historical building where the egg originated has been built but the roof has been damaged. So Raja Ampat comes from four kings who were born from 7 eggs that were obtained by the first generation of virtual tribes.
Kirim umpan balik.
But naming Raja Ampat is also linked to the four major islands in Raja Ampat. Waigeu Island, Solawati, Batanta, and Misol. Also connected with four tribes that are dated at Waigeu, the tribe of ambel, langganyan, kawei, and wawiyai.
Developing from the 19th century, the people of Raja Ampat were then educated to become a formidable maritime society. But then when Raja Ampat has become a world-class underwater tourist destination, indigenous people of Raja Ampat feel neglected.
The residents of Raja Ampat from the beginning also pushed Salawati Island to become the Capital of Raja Ampat Regency. But the proposal was rejected. At present they only hope that the Raja Ampat Regency government respects their existence and develops a virtual tribe culture as a tourism asset in Raja Ampat.
