Chapter Summary

There are indications that at the end of the seventeenth and the beginning of the eighteenth century the Papuan raiding enterprises extended their areas of operation. Before the era of Sultan Hamzah Fahrudin, the co-operation between the Papuans, East Seramese, and Sultan Tidore had been deeply rooted. It had even been rumoured that Sultan Tidore provided the Misoolese raiders with gunpowder and that envoys of Sultan Tidore had been spotted in person in the Papuan raiding fleet. The disappointment of Gamrange persisted during the reign of Sultan Hasanudin. The alliance between the Tidore elite and the Papuan raiders improved considerably during the reign of Prince Nukus father, Sultan Jamaludin. The raiding enterprises under the flag of Prince Nukus uprising in 1780 reveal a new dimension. The Tobaru people belonged to the Gamkonora in North Halmahera, one of the most important areas in the periphery of Ternate.
