Chapter Summary

The term Papuan in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, refers not only to the Papuans of Raja Ampat but was also applied to Tidoran subjects in the south-eastern part of Halmahera, the Gamrange, and Birds Head Peninsula on the New Guinea mainland. During the rebellion of Prince Nuku, the Papuan role in strengthening the rebel forces was decisive in a number of skirmishes. The Raja Ampat Papuans maintained close connections with the Biak- Numfor people. The stories about the relationship between the Raja Ampat and Tidore recognize the special relationship between the Papuans of Raja Ampat and Tidore. The most important contemporary investigation of the Onin people by the Dutch was conducted by a Banda-based opperkoopman, Johannes Keijts. The people of Gamrange were generally regarded as the most important in the Tidore periphery.

Keywords: Halmaherans; Onin people; Prince Nuku; Raja Ampat Papuans; Tidore periphery
