Interest Betawi From Indonesia

Betawi tribe came from the mating-mawin ethnic and nation in the past. Biologically, they are claiming to be the Betawi people are descendants of mixed blood of the various tribes and nations that were imported by the Dutch to Batavia. The so-called real people or ethnic Betawi in Jakarta as of new entrants. This ethnic group was born from a mix of other ethnic groups who had already been living in Jakarta, like Sundanese, Javanese, Balinese, Bugis, Makassar, Ambon, and Malay immigrants and ethnic groups, such as Arabic, Indian, Chinese, and Europeans.

The term Betawi
Betawi words used to express the native tribes who inhabit the Jakarta and Creole Malay language it uses, as well as Malay culture. Betawi word comes from the word "Batavia," the old name of Jakarta during the Dutch East Indies.

Tribal history Betawi
Preceded by the Sundanese (majority), prior to the 16th century and into the kingdom and then Pakuan Pajajaran Tarumanegara. In addition to the Sundanese, there are also foreign merchants and sailors of the north coast of Java, from different islands of Eastern Indonesia, from Malacca on the Malay Peninsula, China and even from Gujarat in India.

In addition, the agreement between Surawisesa (King of Sunda) by the Portuguese in 1512 which allow the Portuguese to build a community in the Sunda Kalapa result in mixing of the local population with a lower Portuguese Portuguese mixed blood. Of this community was born keroncong music.

After making Batavia as the VOC niaganya center, the Netherlands requires a lot of manpower to open farmland and build the economy of this city. When the VOC was a lot of buying slaves from Bali authorities, because it was in Bali is still ongoing practice of slavery. [1] That the cause is still tersisanya vocabulary and grammar in Betawi Bali now. Batavia trade advances attract various tribes of the archipelago to the Chinese, Arab and India to work in this city. Influence of ethnic foreigners is evident in the Betawi wedding dress is heavily influenced Arab and Chinese elements. Various place names in the history of Jakarta also left clues about the arrival of various tribes to Batavia; Kampung Melayu, Kampung Bali, Kampung Ambon, Java Village, Kampong Makassar and Bugis Village. Bugis houses in the northern part of Jl. Two mangoes in the Bugis village which began in 1690. In the early 20 th century there are still some home like this in the city.

University of Indonesia anthropologist, Dr. Yasmine Zaki Shahab, MA estimates, the newly formed ethnic Betawi about a century ago, between the years 1815-1893. This estimate is based on a study of the demographic history of Jakarta residents who pioneered Australian historian, Lance Castle. In the Dutch colonial era, the government is always a census, which is based on national or ethnic group. In Jakarta census data in 1615 and 1815, there were people from various ethnic groups, but there is no record of the Betawi ethnic group. The results of the census of 1893 showed a loss of some ethnic groups that previously existed. For example, Arabs and Moors, the Balinese, Javanese, Sundanese, the South Sulawesi, Sumbawa people, people of Ambon and Banda, and the Malays. The possibility of all these tribes and Arab Moors archipelago is categorized into the unity of the indigenous population (the Netherlands: inlander) in Batavia who then absorbed into the Betawi ethnic group.

Tribal Art and Culture Betawi 
Betawi culture is a mestizo culture, or a mixture of diverse ethnic cultures. Since the days of the Dutch East Indies, Batavia (now Jakarta) is the capital of the Dutch East Indies attract migrants from inside and outside the archipelago. The tribes that inhabit Jakarta, among others, Javanese, Sundanese, Minang, Batak, and Bugis. Apart from the population of the archipelago, the Betawi culture also absorb a lot of foreign cultures, such as Arab culture, Chinese, Indian, and Portuguese.

As a native tribe Betawi Jakarta somewhat sidelined by the new settlers. They come out of Jakarta and moved to areas in the province of West Java and Banten province. Betawi culture was excluded by other cultures both from Indonesia and Western culture. To preserve the Betawi culture, heritage founded in Situ Babakan.

Interest Betawi language used  
Mixed nature of the Betawi dialect is a reflection of Betawi culture in general, which is the result of mating a wide range of cultures, both originating from other areas in domestic and foreign cultures.

There is also the opinion that the tribes who inhabited the area around Batavia are also classified as an ethnic Betawi early (proto Betawi). Historically, the Kingdom Tarumanagara, based in Sundapura or Sunda Kalapa, had attacked and conquered by the Sumatran kingdom of Srivijaya. Therefore, do not be surprised if in the port of Sunda Sunda ethnic Kalapa, long before the Youth Pledge, already use the Malay language, which is commonly used in Sumatra, which then serve as the national language.

Because the difference is the language used at the beginning of the 20th century, the Dutch think of people who lived in Batavia as different ethnic and call it a Sundanese ethnic ethnic Betawi (a derivation of Batavia). However, there are many local names and the name of the river which is still maintained in Sundanese as said Ancol, Jewel, Cilandak, Ciliwung, Cideng (derived from Cihideung and then turned into Cideung and tearkhir be Cideng), and others are still accordance with the naming of which is described in ancient texts Bujangga Manik [2] which is currently stored in the Bodleian library, Oxford, England.

Although the formal language used in Jakarta is Indonesian, the language of informal or colloquial language is Indonesian Betawi dialect. Betawi dialect itself is divided into two types, namely the middle and Betawi dialect Betawi dialect edge. Betawi dialect was generally reads "é" Betawi dialect, while the edge is "a". Betawi dialect center or the center is often regarded as a true Betawi dialect, because it comes from the beginning of the city of Jakarta, the lush countryside around Jakarta City of Batavia, Big Rice, Monument, Cilincing, Kemayoran, Senen, Kramat, to the southernmost boundary Meester (Jatinegara ). Betawi dialect from the periphery to the South Jatinegara, Condet, Jagakarsa, Depok, Rawa Belong, Ciputat up to the edge of the south to West Java. Examples of middle Betawi dialect speakers are Benjamin S., Ida Royani and Aminah Cendrakasih, because they are derived from the Kemayoran and Kramat Sentiong. While the sample edges Betawi dialect speakers are Mandra and Mr. Tile. The most obvious example is when they say kenape / why'' (why). Betawi dialect was clearly stating the "é", while the edge Betawi pitched "a" die hard like "ain 'dead in the way of reading the Koran Quran.

Dance from Betawi Interest  
The art of dance in Jakarta is a blend of cultural elements in it. For example Betawi dance masks, dance-influenced Yapong Jaipong Sunda, Cokek and others. At first, the art of dance in Jakarta has influence Sunda and China, as a costume dance dancer Yapong typical Beijing Opera player. But Jakarta can be called the most dynamic regions. In addition to dance the old dances also come with a dynamic style and choreography.

Dramatic art of Interest Betawi 
Betawi traditional dramas such Lenong and Tonil. This traditional staging of the play usually depict everyday life Betawi people, interspersed with songs, rhymes, comedy, and witty jokes. Sometimes actors can interact directly with lenong audience. 

Dance Maena of Nias

Description: Maena a dance that is very simple and modest, but it implies togetherness, joy, excitement, which is not less interesting as the dances that exist in the archipelago. Compared with Moyo dance, dance baluse / dance war (still from Nias), maena does not require any special skills. Simple movements have made almost anyone can do it. Constraints or difficulties the only thing is situated on a series of rhyme-rhyme maena (fanutunõ maena), in order to correspond to events where maena it done. Pantun maena (fanutunõ maena) is usually performed by one person or two people and referred to as sanutunõ maena, while the poem maena (fanehe maena) voiced by the people who took part in a dance called the sanehe maena and maena / ono maena. Maena poems are fixed and kept participants diulang-ulang/disuarakan maena-rhyme after rhyme maena dilantunkannya, until the end of a dance maena. Maena rhyme sung by people who are fluent in the language bertuntun Nias (amaedola / Duma-Duma), but as the development of sophisticated and modern civilization, rhyme-rhyme maena typical li niha nono is much disappeared, and many mixed by the Indonesian language in penuturannya, can we listen if there are events maena big city. Maena arguably a ceremonial dance and colossal of Nias tribe, because there is no limit to the number who may participate in this dance. The more participants maena dance, the spirit of dance and shake well (fataelusa) maenanya. Maena usually done in a marriage ceremony (fangowalu), party (falõwa / owasa / folau ORI), even maena Golkar at elections in 1971 (, indicates how dance maena already entrenched and flexible, to be held in what events only. There was no mistaking the distinctive dance maena is easily recognized and carried by ono niha or by people outside Nias second to none with poco-poco dance (Sulawesi) or dance Sajojo (Irian), which has enriched the national cultural scene. In Nias and in big cities such as Jakarta, Medan, Batam, Surabaya, Bandung, Padang, Sibolga etc., we often find maena at weddings Nias people, and we also occasionally take part in it "but only" as sanehe maena . Maena, Moyo dance, dance baluse, Hombo stone, li niha, is a wealth of cultural amaedola niha ono which should continue to be preserved, so that our identity as ono niha not disappear and the Indonesiaan is maintained by cultural influences from outside of the stronger squeeze local cultures.

The development of traditional culture Nusantara experiencing an increasingly competitive challenges of the cultures of other countries. This is an indication of the need for an innovative breakthrough to boost the return of traditional cultural values ​​that slumped to a more reasonable in view of modern society. 

One of the characters that need special attention are the endangered Batak script associated with limited sources of data and information. In contrast to the literature and culture of Java is quite exist, Batak script is still very minimal understood by the public. Even most of the Batak people themselves are unaware of the Batak script.

Factors that cause the extinction of traditional Batak script writing, among others:

  1. Most of the Batak literature was never written. Folklore in the form of fables, myths and legends, for instance, and umpasa, torhan-torhanan, turiturian, huling-hulingan all derived only orally from generation to generation.
  2. Introduction of Islam and Christianity to the Batak lands, who hated products pustaha the datu who are considered "objects of infidelity" resulting in the emergence of mass destruction. As a result, since 1852 has been endangered pustaha.

In today's modern era of communications media are most effective global write is Latin letters. The fact is the basis for adaptation efforts Batak alphabet characters into Latin letters, as a good solution in terms of functionality, efficiency and benefits that can be accepted by society. These factors are important, given the script in terms of communication are no longer needed.

The ultimate objective of the research process is the production design character script Latin letters archipelago, with a focus Toba Batak script, which makes the Batak script is easily accessible and known character by the tribes and other nations around the world, including the Batak society itself. Thus, the Latin letters alphabet character of this archipelago can function as a mediator of socialization Batak visual literacy with the level of effectiveness is equivalent to the Latin letters and the rate of spread of a global standard.

Letter Pattern Design Process

As written communication media, letters have significant differences with Latin letters, especially in terms of visual and technical readings. Differentiator in terms of visuals such as proportions, visual character, the anatomy of letters, and the construction geometry. Variants from a technical point of reading is included in the Batak script script type silabik, the script describing the syllable (a-ha-ma-na-ra), while Latin letters included in this type of phonetic alphabet which is kind of script in the form of phoneme symbol (ab-CDE ). On the basis of these differences, then the process of adaptation characters require some form of basic pattern of letters that became a meeting point between Toba Batak alphabet characters with Latin characters.

Saman Dance

Saman dance created and developed by the ulama of Aceh, a Muslim religious leader named Sheikh Saman. Originally this dance is only an ordinary game called Pok Ane. Because the public has a high interest in the disisipilah with poems of praise to Allah SWT. So this dance is also a media propaganda at that time. Exercise is usually done under the under menasah. Meunasah mushalla the building is made ​​of the stage. And they do not miss his prayers in congregation. Conditions in Aceh are in a war, then the poems were made to increase the morale of the people of Aceh. Today this dance is more frequently in performances at local celebrations, religious. Tari Saman began to show off during performances at the Cultural Week of Aceh (PKA) II and the inauguration of Taman Mini Indonesia Indah (Taman Mini). Saman at TMII tumultuous roar not only the archipelago but to foreign countries.

Saman lyric used Arabic and Aceh. This dance does not have the accompaniment of the game, because the arm movements and poems sung and with bodies flung in all directions in a single synchronization, has made ​​the atmosphere become excited. But now, the dance that comes from the Gayo highlands are usually often displayed using the accompaniment of musical instruments like drums.

Songs (the movements of dance) is basically the same, namely to clap hands, claps and pats his chest above the knees, raised his hands up in turn. Songs that are used in dance saman are not fixed (except rengum). Where poetry and rhythm changes according to place, time and situation of the show. So there is no standard for poetry saman dance. Saman can be divided according to place of origin: Saman Gayo in Aceh and the Middle East, Saman Lokop in East Aceh, West Aceh Saman Aceh Barat.
Led by a so-called Syech. Almost all Acehnese dances performed abuzz. This requires cooperation and mutual trust between Syech with the dancers.

Developments finally made saman themed poems, such as about the development, customs, agriculture, youth and others. How to sing songs in the Saman dance is divided into 5 types:

  1. Rengum, the roar (murmur) that begins by the lifter.
  2. Tones, namely Regnum which was soon followed by all dancers.

This section is like a warm-up before we are invited in ecstasy Saman other fast motion. Then known as the sheikh in a shrill voice will memberkan on cue at the end of the motion signify ulu ni song that will soon change the motion and entered the fast rhythm of the verse saying:
