Chapter Summary

The role of the East Seramese in the whole gamut of the struggle throughout the course of Prince Nukus rebellion was significant. The majority of them were commercially oriented people from prominent negeri with a reputation as centres of trade. The traders of East Seram, especially those from Gorom and Seram Laut, played an important role in linking Maluku with the trade networks, called sosolot, in the Raja Ampat Islands to the north and with the western coastal areas of the Papuan mainland, Onin and Kobiai. The mounting hostile relationship between the East Seramese and the Dutch was allegedly instigated by the newly settled Bandanese. Under the terms of the 1700 contract, East Seram was under the authority of Tidore.
