Festival Jepen, Wajah Melayu Islam dalam Tari Pergaulan

. Sabtu, 30 Oktober 2010

Festival Jepen, Wajah Melayu Islam dalam Tari Pergaulan - Tarakan Kaltim BorneoMasyarakat Tarakan Kalimantan Timur akan meluapkan kegembiraan dalam Festival Jepen 2010. Inilah upaya pelestarian seni dan budaya daerah milik masyarakat pesisir pantai itu.

“Saya ini hidup-mati di seni budaya. Salah satunya Jepen,” ungkap Asrani, budayawan dan pelestari tari Jepen di Kalimantan Timur (Kaltim). Pria asal Kutai Kartanegara itu lantas mengungkapkan kecintaan sekaligus kegundahannya atas seni dan budaya tradisi.

Salah satu yang menjadi perhatian Asrani adalah tari Jepen, seni tari rakyat Kutai yang dipengaruhi kebudayaan Melayu dan Islam. Menurutnya, nasib tari pergaulan yang populer di kalangan masyarakat pesisir pantai itu tak jauh beda dengan tarian tradisi lainnya. Artinya, kata dia, tari Jepen di Kaltim tidak berkembang pesat tapi masih bertahan dan tidak hilang.

“Beberapa daerah yang masih sering mempertunjukan tarian ini misalnya di Kutai Kartanegara, Berau, Tarakan, Tana Tidung, Bulungan, dan Kutai Timur,” sebut pria yang pernah mendirikan sebuah sanggar seni budaya pada 1992.

Layaknya sebuah tari pergaulan, tari Jepen umumnya ditarikan berpasang-pasangan yang menggambarkan kegembiraan sekaligus rasa syukur. Kostum yang dikenakan pun biasanya semarak dan kaya warna sebagai perlambang keceriaan. Penari pria biasanya bercelana panjang, berbaju Teluk Belangga (lengan panjang) dan bersarung.Sedangkan penari wanita bersarung dan berkebaya dengan model khas daerah masing-masing.

Tarian enerjik ini menggunakan gerak dasar langkah kaki dan lambaian tangan, dengan iringan nyanyian dan irama musik khas Kutai yang disebut Tingkilan. Adapun alat musiknya terdiri dari gambus (sejenis gitar berdawai 6) dan ketipung (semacam kendang kecil). “Tarian ini juga terkadang diselingi pantun berbalas,” ucap Asrani.

Selain di Kalimantan, lanjutnya, Jepen sebagai tarian berbasis Melayu-Islam juga populer di daerah pesisir pantai lainnya seperti Riau dan Sumatera Utara. Bahkan, di Betawi juga berkembang tari Japin yang diiringi musik gambus dan kendang kecil. Secara geografis, Jepen hidup pula di Serawak (Malaysia), Tawi-Tawi (Brunei Darussalam) dan Tawao (Philipina).

“Penamaannya mungkin saja berbeda. Bisa tari Jepen, Japin, atau Zapin. Tapi, nafasnya sama-sama Melayu-Islam,” tutur Asrani.

Sebagai tari pergaulan, Jepen awalnya dilakukan semata-mata untuk kesenangan pelakunya (kelangenan) hingga kemudian menjadi bagian dari gaya hidup masyarakat pesisir pantai. Saat ada upacara pernikahan atau khitanan, tetamu dihibur dengan tarian ini. Konon, raja-raja Kutai pun sering memesan kesenian rakyat ini untuk merayakan ulang tahunnya atau menyambut Tahun Baru Islam. Selain itu, tari Jepen juga lazim ditampilkan dalam prosesi menyambut tamu kehormatan semisal menyambut menteri.

“Saya berharap generasi penerus bangsa tidak akan pernah meninggalkan seni budaya daerahnya. Kalau dikelola dan dilestarikan dengan baik, seni budaya juga bisa mendatangkan devisa,” tandasnya.

Hapiza, seorang guru tari Jepen dari sanggar Bina Seni Budaya Indonesia (BSBI) di Samarinda punya harapan serupa. Untuk itu, wanita yang sudah lima tahun mengajar tari ini dengan senang hati mengajarkan tari tradisi itu kepada anak-anak TK dan SD di sanggar yang ada di lantai dua rumahnya. Sementara Hapiza dan puteri bungsunya menari Jepen, putra sulungnya dengan lihai memainkan musik Tingkilan.

“Saat ini baru ada 35 anak yang berlatih tari. Namun, melihat anak-anak mengenal dan mencintai tarian daerah sendiri merupakan suatu kebanggaan bagi saya. Memang agak sulit mencari bibit baru karena anak jaman sekarang lebih tertarik nge-band,” tutur ibu dua anak itu.

Hapiza bersyukur karena hampir semua SD saat ini mewajibkan mata pelajaran muatan lokal kesenian daerah sehingga anak-anak tertantang untuk bisa membawakan tarian, teater, dan lagu daerah. Alhasil, anak-anak yang awalnya tidak suka justru kian bersemangat, terlebih jika ada perlombaan atau festival.

“Grup tari pemenang lomba biasanya akan diajak oleh pemerintah untuk pentas keliling di luar kota. Sehingga, tertanam dalam benak anak-anak bahwa tarian daerah pun bisa membawa mereka menjelajahi seluruh Indonesia,” bebernya.

Sejauh ini, sambung Hapiza, grup tari sanggar BSBI telah pentas di sejumlah kota seperti Surabaya, Yogyakarta, Menado, dan Anjungan Kaltim di TMII Jakarta. Ia pun berharap pemerintah memberi perhatian lebih sehingga kesenian daerah bisa lebih sering tampil di luar negeri.

Direktur Promosi Dalam Negeri Kementerian Kebudayaan dan Pariwisata (Kemenbudpar) Fathul Bahri mengatakan, pihaknya sudah sering mengikutsertakan tim tari daerah untuk ikut misi kebudayaan RI di luar negeri. Diantaranya di Malaysia, Brunai Darussalam, Shanghai, Australia, Jerman, hingga Amerika. “Biasanya grup tari pemenang lomba dan yang dinilai bagus itu kita ikut sertakan,” tegasnya.

Menurut Fathul, penyelenggaraan lomba dan festival Jepen juga merupakan cara efektif dalam melestarikan dan menggelorakan semangat kesenian rakyat agar tidak layu. Untuk itu, Kemenbudpar mendukung penuh penyelenggaraan Festival Jepen 2010 yang diselenggarakan di Tarakan, mulai 30-31 Oktober. Menurutnya, kendati pesertanya baru mencakup kabupaten dan kota di Kalimantan, festival tersebut sudah ditetapkan sebagai festival nasional.

“Festival ini sudah yang ketiga kalinya dan bertujuan memacu masyarakat untuk melestarikan tari Jepen sebagai potensi daerah. Saya lihat tariannya bagus, enerjik, tidak monoton dan menunjukkan nuansa gembira dari muda-mudi. Selain tari Jepen, pertunjukan tarian dan musik dari daerah lain juga akan tampil dalam Festival Jepen 2010,” paparnya.

Fathul berharap melalui perlombaan tari dalam festival Jepen semangat rakyat akan terpompa. Biasanya, kata dia, jauh hari sebelum penyelenggaraan festival masyarakat semangat berlatih untuk mencapai target kemenangan secara sehat. Selain itu, melalui ajang lomba kreasi Jepen terlahirlah Tari Jepen Tungku, Tari Jepen Gelombang, Tari Jepen 29, Tari Jepen Sidabil dan Tari Jepen Tali. Umumnya tari kreasi baru tersebut sudah mengalami perkembangan dalam hal gerakan dan kostum, kendati nafas aseli tari Jepen masih tetap melekat.

“Gerakan dan warna kostum tari Jepen sekarang ini mulai lebih berani, karena setelah difestivalkan orang menilai bahwa yang lebih semarak dan kreatif itulah yang akan menang. Untuk itu, sang koreografer dituntut untuk kreatif dan inovatif,” tuturnya.

Berwisata Sejarah dan Budaya di Tarakan

Tarakan merupakan sebuah pulau yang terletak di ujung utara propinsi Kaltim. Pulau ini dipilih sebagai lokasi penyelenggaraan Festival Jepen 2010 karena letaknya yang sangat strategis, yakni berbatasan dengan Malaysia dan Filipina di sebelah utara. Tarakan juga kerap dijadikan tujuan wisata bagi turis dari negara bagian Sabah (Malaysia), Brunai Darussalam, Filipina, Jepang, China, Korea dan negara pasifik lainnya. Para pelancong dari Australia dan Selandia Baru juga tak sulit mencapai kawasan ini.

Di masa lampau, pulau Tarakan juga memiliki keterikatan emosional dengan tiga negara besar yakni Jepang, Amerika dan Australia. Ketiga negara ini ikut terlibat dalam Perang Pasifik saat memperebutkan Tarakan. Sebab itu, selain alam yang indah, Tarakan juga memiliki sejumlah objek wisata bersejarah yang menjadi saksi bisu kedahsyatan Perang Pasifik. Antara lain lading minyak, bunker, gudang senjata, rumah bundar, benteng pertahanan, meriam dan serpihan pesawat terbang.

Kekayaan budaya dan sejarah yang dimiliki Tarakan menjadikan pulau seluas 281 kilometer persegi ini layak dikunjungi. Apalagi, jarak antara satu objek wisata yang satu dengan lainnya tidak terlalu jauh. Boleh dikata, Tarakan adalah surga wisata alam yang eksotis dan fantastis. (Indah Susanti/Koran SI/tty)

Bara is Not Cold Right
From: Danan Jaya (dnjaya@yahoo.co.uk)

We say thank you as much as possible to the government officials who managed to reduce last month's riots in Tarakan quickly. The riots have only run 3 days and hopefully this out this Tarakan not become hot news on TV anymore.

However, we still need to be alert and do not pay attention when there is news that no clear origin. Provocation had occurred a week since the peace with the graffiti-graffiti blood use in the home pack in Selumit Wahab. Streaks of blood that had sparked residents to prepare for war again. Actors such inducement reportedly been arrested and the blood used was chicken blood. After that there's more variety of other news that could be reignited the mass anger that has been cooled it. The news comes just still continues to this day. Fortunately so far successfully muted.

Bara was really cold yet, and it seems there are still those who can not accept the situation and still hold grudges. People who have not received it tried to provoke unrest continues to happen again. I think it becomes our duty together to try to lure the-teaser that does not work, thanks if the individual that tried to lure turbidity can be caught.

So hope all of us, hopefully Tarakan really secure peace as before.

Sincerely,
DNj.
PS: I avoid the term provocation, because the term is a foreign word.

Myths Behind the Riots Tarakan Stud (2-Done)

.

Bugis Kajang Come, Commander Shane Bird

Tarakan Borneo - STORY Commander and Commander of the Bird Beetle continued to expand. Included in Nunukan. No less interesting is the story of people who associate with kesaktian Bugis Kajang.

Commander of the beetle is considered as a pioneer for help early in a conflict. If the presence of Commander of the beetles have not resolve the conflict, whether it's for a victory or to the peace agreement, the then Commander of the imported birds.

As Commander of the Beetle, Bird Commander also comes from the tribe Dayak, Central Kalimantan. Commander of the bird will come after doing meditation in a particular place. Miracle, able to incorporate the spirit to all the troops on the ground so that they are raging in the unconscious.

Outside of that awareness, swords in hand cut the throat of the people who have been determined through the ritual of the Commander of the Bird. Some even say that the sword was flying alone to find opponents who had been predetermined.

Between believing and not, magic is the dreaded Bird Commander of the citizens. Do-do is not just a myth. Lest it would happen in Tarakan. It could be also be extended to other areas, such as Samarinda and Nunukan. You see, these two regions immediately menghelat election is of course prone to conflict.

Residents also heard stories that the magic bird Commander also used in Sampit so many fall victim to the sadistic. Its properties are, the victim's neck because heads should be chopped tumbal of ritual that has been done.

"Perhaps it was just a myth. However, on the other hand, mentioned also that the Commander of the Bird's actually very wise. He's a good guy. He is elder. If there is any way of peace, the Commander of birds pick the best for the good of all.

He was a symbol of people patiently and simple. When it comes to self-esteem and humiliation and there's no other way, then down. Hence, the Commander is not just any bird down. He is very selective, "said Jaya, 78, Tidung traditional elders who daily seek seaweed.

So how about the Commander of the Bird's avert supernatural powers? An indigenous elder from South Sulawesi in Nunukan narrate the language is said. He said, magic Commander and Commander Bird Beetles occur in hundreds of years ago. That there are now living generation.

He also relates that among the Bugis Tidung and still have a blood relationship. The proof, many Bugis people who marry Tidung. And vice versa.

A member of Harmony Family of South Sulawesi, Jamil, his father and mother Bugis Makassar Tidung people. His father was one of the most respected public figures in Nunukan. Sekkab Nunukan, HZ Zainuddin also married to the Bugis.

Maybe that's why so between Bugis and Tidung always avoid bloody conflict. When there is conflict in Nunukan in 2008, there was news that a group of people from Kajang off the boat. Moments later, a group that involved conflict avoidance. Some areas in Nunukan too quiet. The bloody conflict was avoided.

Some residents in Nunukan claim often heard that the Commander of the Bird's magic never been challenged by the Bugis people who come from Kajang. This story is yet another myth nuanced. Why not, when the Commander of the Bird demonstrates its miracle, came also the magic of the Bugis Kajang.

Bugis Kajang spread the rice to the earth. Only by swinging his finger in a circular motion, thousands of rice seeds was also moved himself up to come together in a pile.

Bird commander who witnessed the scene, initially mediocre. However, when explained, that this is only an example of how the Bugis Kajang opponents are able collect scattered in the field of conflict as easily collect the rice seeds. Having collected his opponents, then easily deceived. They could not resist.

"However, the Bugis are not going to trick the people who are not helpless anymore," said Chairman of the Martial Arts College Holy Footprint Putra Muhammadiyah, Pimda 212 Nunukan district, Kaharuddin Andi Andi Tokkong, Wednesday, October 6.

University seeks to accommodate "people who initially felt good" to be fostered ruqyah. It is said, initially felt good, because many of its members that before entering this college, feel bruiser. However, when going to college and channel kejagoannya, little by little given moral guidance that will eventually be aware of its own and will not fight.

This embrace multiethnic college in Nunukan. Both the Bugis, Dayak, Tidung, as well as other tribes, such as Java and others. This strategy is used to avoid ethnic conflict in Nunukan.

Pembinanya came from Pare Pare, namely Pendekar Sukri President Saleh. Swordsman his Associate of Tidung community leaders, namely HZ Zainuddin who is also Sekkab Nunukan. Dayak and coaches from youth Tidung.

The number of cadres blue belt comprising 23 people in Nunukan multiethnic. Spreading in the four districts, namely Nunukan District, South Nunukan, Sebatik, and West Sebatik. Included are in the process in District Sembakung and Lumbis.

So if this will not be a paramilitary, paramilitary troops and whiz-whiz that could lead to conflict? "Oh, no. Not at all. We are the border. We need to defend the state reserves. The young people must have self-defense provision.'s Not just martial arts, but also akhlakul kharimah.

It's even a unifying vehicle to avoid excessive growth of tribal primordialism. Thus, it will avoid the things that trigger a horizontal conflict, "said Kaharuddin who met after Asar prayers berjemaah with its members around the training center, yesterday.

Kaharuddin who is also the historian says, that as the Bugis, Tidung also has its own history. They also live sedentary. They really do not like violence.

This can be seen from their art, namely dance Zapin (Jeppeng) which kemelayu-melayuan. There are similarities with the art Bugis. There's even a diving Bugis community dance in their culture.

If traced the history, the kingdom Tidung stand in 1551-1916, was preceded by the Royal and Ancient Tidung replaced by Tarakan. Monarchy Amiril last king is king of the sea, Rashid holds Datoe Datoe Fair.

Kingdom Tidung or also known by the name of the Kingdom of Tarakan (Kalkan / Kalka), the empire that ruled North Tidung in East Kalimantan, based in Tarakan Island and ends in Salimbatu.

Previously there were two kingdoms in this region. In addition Tidung Kingdom, there is also the Sultanate Bulungan located in Tanjung Palas. Based on existing genealogy, explained that on the East coast of the island of Tarakan, the region already exist Binalatung Tidung Ancient Empire (The Ancient Kingdom of Tidung), about AD 1076-1156.

They then moved to the West coast of the island of Tarakan, namely in the area of Tanjung Batu, about the years 1156-1216. Then shifted again, but remained in the West coast, namely the area of the river area, roughly the years 1216-1394. After that move again relatively far from the island of Tarakan, namely to the region Pimping West and the Yellow Land area, ranging from years 1394-1557.

A source explained that the history of the kingdom and the leader (king) who once ruled Tidung divided among the top few places that has now been separated into several districts.

The regions that include Bulungan (Salimbatu, Tanjung Palas Subdistrict of Central), (Malinau Kota, Malinau District), Sesayap, Tidung Tana District, (Sembakung, Nunukan District (City of Tarakan), and others down to the local Sabah ( Malaysia), the South.

This reference indicates that it has a tradition Tidung move, similar to the Bugis. Therefore, for calling the Bugis migrants and people Tidung as indigenous people, still requires in-depth review. That is why, there are anecdotes that fellow immigrants should not be in conflict.

No wonder when the myth Chief Bird with powerful people from Kajang'd choose to avoid bloody conflict. Evidence, bloody conflict in Tarakan so quickly muffled when there is also news that the Bugis ethnic group will also move to Tarakan. (*)

Beetles Commander Kebalkan Massa, Chief of the Bird Fly Sword

Tarakan Borneo - respected. Udin Beams (tattooed), which dubbed as the Commander of the Beetle by the citizens of Tarakan and Nunukan, the peace procession in Tarakan, last week. (PHOTO ARNOLD / RADAR TARAKAN)

LIKE movie mythology course. Unrest in Tarakan left interesting stories in the community.

Behind the trauma that still haunts some people Tarakan, there are interesting stories that became a byword. The stories that smelled so there are myths that told her to smile. However, some are quite serious, even more seriously.

Nuanced tales of myth it is the presence of two warlords who would assist in conflict Tidung in Tarakan. Chief Commander of the first degree and second degree Beetles Birds Commander.

Both came from the Dayak, Central Kalimantan. However, the miracle is different. Commander of the beetles could create mass resistance through a specific ritual process so that all Tidung brave in the field.

The Commander of the bird will come after the meditation perfectly. Miracle, able to incorporate the spirit to all the troops on the ground so that they rampage through unconscious finish off his opponents. They're like possessed.

In addition, the Commander of the Birds can move the sword up in the air. Sword-sword move itself chop your opponent's neck which has been determined origin.

According to the stories of citizens, this is the magic bird Commander acting on the riots in Sampit several years ago. As a result, the victim lying in a sadist. Many of the victims with a broken neck. Residents also memitoskan that the victim's head that is the evidence and sacrificial rituals Bird Commander.

Plan arrival Beetle Commander, I get when still in Makassar. The day before leaving for Tarakan, my contact phone number several residents in Tarakan. One of them claimed to be displaced by future Chief of the Bird. He said he would follow the Commander of beetles that are already in Tarakan.

Half an hour later, I received an SMS that says, "You'd better postpone the Tarakan. Commander beetles already here."

Had too alarmed. However, it was the last SMS that is pumping my journalistic instincts to get to Tarakan, although delayed one day due to restrictions on the landing at Tarakan. This was done to avoid the deployment of the security of certain groups who would disturb the atmosphere in Tarakan.

I certainly do not pray to be able to see the truth of the myth of the Commander of beetles in an atmosphere of ethnic war. A clash that tears it morandakan peace Tarakan. What's interesting to be published is to what extent the effects of the myths that affect the community in Tarakan.

Heavy rains suddenly flushed when arriving at the Airport Tarakan Juata, 23.30 local time. Besides the rain, also died lamp. Again, the myth emerged. "Yes, tonight really cool. Nature into our favor.

Just peace agreement, also soothing rain suddenly Tarakan town, "said one taxi driver who rushed widen the umbrella. He also believes that the Commander beetles already in Tarakan. However, when asked where he, the driver was shaking his head.

Tarakan town atmosphere that night not to be feared. You see, the next will come the National Police, Bambang Hendarso Danuri. Security must be super tight. Leisure Tarakan city would enjoy a priority.

I chose to mingle with residents who were displaced. However, it turns out places that you want addressed is empty. Since afternoon, the refugees in the city had returned to their homes. Fortunately there are displaced families who kindly called to his home in the Area Beringin.

In areas ranging from one kilometer from the mass concentration during the riots, many residents shut the door. If you knock on the door, the homeowner will not be open if it does not know the people who knocked. The door knocker even mention his name. If the vowel characters are familiar with the host, then the door will be opened.

I want to immediately know what kind of chief figure in the eyes of citizens beetles that make them afraid to go outside the house. One of his chief told him that Beetle had entered the city. Features, full of tattoos. Posture tiny. Then, how can action in securing the city is so tight security?

On Friday morning, I rush to join the entourage Chief of Police. Not securing themselves from the arrival of Commander of the Beetle, but a small liver me to guess, lest it not a myth.

Lest this is true of certain groups of warlords who deliberately brought in to take part in peace in Tarakan it. After all, since the arrival of Police Chief plans, has been conducted twice a peace deal that brings some community leaders.

In the midst of a peace deal ceremony attended by Chief of Police, the shy and immediately wanted to know, and little confidence, I asked one reporter, "The boss, in which it was Beetle Commander?" My question was a little wise guy, though, I've never witnessed it. However, potent, too. Who were asked directly pointing, "That's up ahead!"

A few minutes later, a man full of tiny tattoos on the body and his face was hugged by Chief of Police. Police must bend over a lot because the body's chief Beetle shorter.

Almost five minutes I was transfixed. Glaring at the figure of the Commander-in beetles from a distance of three meters, I do not moves. I also chose to cancel the intention to meet and talk with the Commander. Especially when it can be information that the Commander of the "stay" or maybe diinapkan on one luxury hotel in Tarakan.

I then thought about something that requires me to choose. Does continuing Commander visited Beetle or exploit for any thing more useful. I also think more about the segmentation of time efficiency and our newspaper (Daily DAWN) with various calculations about profit hurt to publicize the Commander of the Beetle.

"Cancel!" That last conclusion that makes me not to be interviewed Commander Beetle. Surely my calculation is not one hundred percent correct. Moreover, the Commander of the Beetle is the figure of "hero" in his community. He is not the thugs in their eyes. Clearly, he's one of the "leaders" who may be deemed necessary to be presented for the sake of securing a peace agreement in Tarakan.

At least, he has received attention from the ranks of security and other parties. The commander had been "getting space" in the presence of Chief of Police at the time of the visit was peaceful.

I finally decided to return to the village residents who prefer living in the house. There, some residents are in a yellow ribbon on the door that has been installed a few days after his family security. Residents in the village who has posted a white ribbon too, they open it.

There are people who even rush to change the color of ribbon that are installed prior to flee. He received the news that supporters of a particular ribbon colors coming soon. Supporting the ribbon color will be coordinated Commander Beetle.

However, until I left Tarakan to continue the journey to Nunukan, Sunday afternoon, October 3, what is feared to citizens and what dimitoskan, does not occur. Alhamdulillah.

Apparently, the Commander of the beetles in question they are a tiny figure of a man who was tattooed. Some residents in Nunukan said that his real name is Udin Beams. "Udin also never came in Nunukan. He is very simple. Rarely way," said Aziz, Tuesday, October 5.

Aziz also explained that the Commander of the beetles that could be a therapy for a peace. Instead it will be a suggestion for certain groups to be more energetic in a conflict. "But sorry, I did not mention the figure as a thug," said Citizens Nunukan claiming this bloody Tidung and Bugis.

Who was the Commander of the Beetle, which he clearly has been greeted by Chief of Police at the declaration of a peace deal in the town of Tarakan. Some say that the commander of the beetles are also present in the midst of riots Sampit a few years ago. If the group is brutal in Tarakan, it is feared this area into two volumes Sampit.

Fortunately presence in the midst of the masses who come to police headquarters in Tarakan recently, beralibi to calm the masses. If so, who is actually moving the masses? And, if the mass brutality, who is responsible? What are the penalties?

Whatever the answer, Commander of the Beetle has become a "character". Her presence in the midst of a peace agreement in Tarakan ceremony attended by Chief of Police, on Friday last week has been exploited for the sake of peace. The result, for temporary peace Tarakan, East Kalimantan Police chief despite still be based in Tarakan city.

So how about the Commander of the Bird? How did people react in Nunukan Tidung? What response responded historian at Nunukan nuanced reality that myth? (*)

Keep the Great Mosque of Purity, Peace Messages Tidung People

WITH FIGURE Tidung. The author posing together with community leaders Tidung, signatories manuscript Peace Agreement in Tarakan, H Abdul Wahab. (PHOTOS PERSONAL DOCUMENTS)


Report: Basri (4 OCTOBER 2010)

Tarakan Borneo - TWO days I worked hard to meet the central figure Tidung. His name, H Abdul Wahab. This 65-year-old man who signed the Peace Agreement with the tribe Letta, to end the conflict in Tarakan.

Travel to the house Abdul Wahab only spent around 30 minutes from the airport Juwata, Tarakan. Not found significant obstacles in the journey. Unless, had entered a tunnel whose length ranges from half a mile.

The corridor is rather narrow. If the bus pass, one must find the space a bit wide to stop the bus while the other gives way. Both have to set the mirror so as not to rub against each other.

On the first day looking for Abdul Wahab, Friday afternoon, October 1, at 17:15 pm, my heart was excited. Especially when entering the hall with a sharp rise, many young people congregate. One of them sitting on a motorcycle which was parked on the right side of the road. He seriously plays his cell phone keypad. Not caring people who will pass.

My heart is getting worried. I'm hesitant about saying hello or any other greeting. I then remembered the teachings of parents, "Fix your breath. The blind will smile when your heart smile at him."

With a custom home, my "mappatabe" (bowing slightly with his right hand down on the right side of the thigh) while saying, "perimisi ..." I do not use diction "tabe" for fear I know if the Bugis. Understandably, a character I want to visit this newly icon conflict with Bugis Letta. Do not let their perceptions of others.

I was very relieved when the young man who sat on the left side of the road to respond. He shifts the standard bike with a smile and say, "please."

More relieved again when asked one who was fat in post ronda. I just bent a little, blue shirt man smiled pleasantly. He immediately stood up and showed the house Abdul Wahab. Unfortunately, the house in the village Kampung One Skip RT 13 RW 02 No. 24, Tarakan was locked from the outside.

Ahead of the sunset, I chose to work Radar Tarakan (DAWN Group). I tried asking friends Tidung reporters about the character of people. "People were friendly-friendly Tidung, Mas. They were patient-patient," said Miss Annie covering events of the old town when I was a reporter.

I am even more confident to be able to talk more closely with Abdul Wahab. Are now looking for moments when and where I should meet. I chose to stay with the "headquarters", the Great Mosque of Al-Ma'arif on Jl KH Agussalim No. 1, Village Selumit, Central Tarakan Subdistrict.

The mosque is a place Musabaqah Tilawatil Quran VIII 2010 in Tarakan, on this last week, many people who claim to still traumatized by the surrounding. This occurred in respect of a murder case that sparked riots. In the mosque is a place of worship majority Tidung.

In this mosque also the many families of the late Abdullah bin Salim H worship. H Abdullah Salim died on Sunday, September 26, 2010 at the Village Juata Permai due to dispute that sparked riots in several places in Tarakan.

Saturday afternoon, 2 October, the momentum that was coming. I chose the noon prayers at the mosque. Because the experience of yesterday afternoon when residents Tidung get the friendly, plus the story was about patience Mbak Ani Tidung citizens, so I stepped into the mosque area.

I'm trying to forget the story of people who are still reluctant to pass in the vicinity of the mosque because of the trauma of the murder that triggered rioting. Moreover, there are socialization peace deal earlier in the mosque, so I was more optimistic.

Again, one resident Tidung smile I get when going to open a shoe on the stairs of the mosque. He was pulled beard. Through the mirror in front of him, he saw me coming. He turned. I was a little bent, he was smiling.

Which makes me a little hesitant because it uses the attributes of Makassar (clothes DAWN). However, all doubts were gone when I greet someone. The figure is so high. I do not have time to estimate how many centimeters in height. Clearly, if both feet, my head only reached his armpits. He was the H Abdul Wahab.

To start a conversation, I shook as she took photos together. I embrace the rear. He also holds more closely. I then remembered the "magic" of a camera. Although these small cameras, but I was a little long set in front of the figure's face is rather thin. He smiled after a while just push the camera button.

I was deliberately doing it as therapy. The camera can make someone down the proud. In fact, without doing it, H Abdul Wahab definitely too friendly. In addition because he Tidung residents, also because it's not a thug.

I begin by expressing concern for the hearts of a disaster. I side with all who are forced to grieve. Indeed, no opponent in the humanitarian perspective. Humans only one. Which differ only way. Moreover, the case of citizens of this Tarakan involving brothers, a fellow Muslim.

Abdul Wahab did not say much. Again and again closed his eyes. His expression was little changed; tense. It seems to hold back tears. He then said, "We all regret this incident." He did not clarify the unfortunate incident. He rubbed his eyes.

Still so thick that dikenangnya perisitiwa. He was a close family of the late Abdullah bin Salim H. However, it also revealed the greatness of his heart when he said, "To my children, to my brothers and sisters, do not act against the law because the incidents are just pure criminals. This unusual event, only involving unscrupulous people Tidung Letta with unscrupulous people."

Abdul Wahab further statement confirming this figure as a public figure. Nothing wrong if he was asked to sign the Peace Agreement in Tarakan manuscript. Nothing wrong too when he carried off to some conflict-prone regions to disseminate the results of these peace agreements.

After all, in the coming days, both in the vicinity of this mosque, and at Tarakan in general, peace is something that is a hope shared tribal.

Not one of all, if in the vicinity of the Great Mosque rung on display a simple inscription, which reads, "Keep the sanctity of this mosque!" And, thus, staining terebut Peace Agreement, means the sanctity of the Great Mosque of Tarakan, too smudged. (*)

Still Worried, Not Continuing Marriage

Unrest in Tarakan left a lot of stories. Sad story still continues with worries about unrest aftershocks.

Report: Basri (03 OCTOBER 2010)

Morning yesterday, unlike the previous days. The atmosphere in the region at 07.30 Beringin on it completely alert. Pair of eyes staring at every person must pass. Understandably, this region is inhabited Tidung citizens and immigrants from South Sulawesi. While the conflict in the last week involving Tidung and some people from South Sulawesi, the Bugis Letta.

Upon hearing that both sides are peaceful, residents in the area of Banyan began relief, especially those who have been evacuated to a Navy family. Not only citizens who fled from South Sulawesi, but also citizens Tidung. Those who fled in two days, until yesterday had returned all of the homes. Whether they live in Banyan, or elsewhere.

The most recent came from Nunukan yesterday. They are to Nunukan, actually came from South Sulawesi, with the aim of Tarakan. However, when I heard the unrest in Tarakan, direct them to Nunukan. Those who join the thousands of refugees are accommodated in the tents which facilitated Pemkab Nunukan.

Life under a tent for two nights is over. Then still tenangkah them upon arrival in Tarakan yesterday it? "We are still wary. Do not let this day is safe because it came Chief of Police, but the following days, we do not know," she said just pick up balls Asia that eight families newly arrived in the port of Nunukan.

Some residents who met in South Sulawesi Banyan also still worried. Especially mothers. Their reasons, as the main perpetrators of the murder has not been arrested. Until last night, after sunset, so many have closed their doors shut.

They still restrict children's activity outside the home. Especially at night. What they worry about is not to get revenge-old grudges that are not directly related to cases of murder, but an excuse to attack or wreak revenge.

"They like the potential it is okay to have advance planning, or there are targets of their goals. They are just waiting for the momentum of the occurrence of friction. If such a scenario happens, then the disputes would be greater. This is what we worry about," said Nan families who disband his son's wedding on Tuesday night because there are groups that suggest dissolved when disputes occur not far from the party.

At night pacci (tudampenni) is, is celebrated with traditional rituals Bugis. Guests began to arrive. However, when the commotion going on around the party, the guests who were rushed to finish eating his food. Who had not eaten, was forced to cancel eat tudampenni menu. While the ritual mappacci discontinued.

The planned ceremony took place the next day, had to be postponed. They chose the camps. Family H Mustahing who yesterday returned from the refugee was forced to reschedule the party. Especially the pending marriage ceremony. Good day so long planned, it turns out "violent day" in Tarakan.

Anxiety among them, making the family Mustahing hesitate to set reschedule the party and ceremony. Anxiety is triggered also by where they lived near the Dayaks Market. In addition to people of South Sulawesi, this market is also crowded with the Dayak people and Tidung.
This market is located on the seafront. Many traders who settled in the vicinity of the market. Therefore, residents were comprised of sailors and merchants on the mainland. Those who go to sea is Tidung, while the citizens of South Sulawesi, Dayak Market trading in the region.

Market Dayak Dayak tribe named who pioneered the trade in the Village Selumit Beach, Middle Tarakan Subdistrict. In addition to the Dayak tribes who began to trade, they also initially that dominate the market. However, over time, diminishing the Dayak tribe. Immigrants Sulsel replace their position. Until now, most of the people of South Sulawesi. Over 70 per cent. The rest, Tidung and Dayak.

Tidung increasingly desperate. Many who sell land to settlers. High-rise houses built in the immigrant population. In contrast, residents Tidung and Dayaks just build type 21 or 36. The other, choosing cheaper land outside the city. Livelihoods as fish in the sea search continues dilakoni. At sea too, the gap persists. Immigrant population using motorized boats, while residents Tidung just boats.

Social inequalities not only take place on land, but also in the sea. "This is a potential conflict semualah in Tarakan," said H Beddua Asse who was 30 years old living in the Middle Tarakan.

Bugis community leaders recognize that the potential for conflict was indeed long been felt. Fear riots follow-up, also not denied. However, it can be resolved when the security guards still intensive approach and custody.

In conflict-prone areas Beringin that, until last night, still on guard security officer of Infantry Battalion 613 military personnel King Nature. They seemed more relaxed. Some of them even mingling with residents while grilled fish. Other colleagues should still be on guard.

Chairman KKSS, Ince Rivai, cautioned residents not to worry. If there is concern about security conditions are not yet fully recovered, he said it's perfectly natural because of the trauma of residents.

"I'm sure things will soon return to normal. We believe in the forces who has taken various approaches to community leaders. Including the headman and subdistrict heads the incentive to socialize," said Ince, last night.

Ince also promised to carry out activities involving all citizens. The goal, to tighten the relationship between diverse cultures. Of course including the culture that had not been forced to establish a continuation of wedding delayed due to riots. They need a guarantee not to worry. (*)

Rombongan Vietnam ke Tarakan Pelajari Kehutanan

. Rabu, 20 Oktober 2010

Rombongan Vietnam ke Tarakan Pelajari Kehutanan - Kaltim BorneoTARAKAN - Tarakan kedatangan tamu istimewa dari Vietman. Rombongan yang berjumlah 22 orang tersebut sengaja ke kota ini untuk belajar tentang kehutanan.

“Mereka juga ingin mengetahui bagaimana caranya mendapatkan sertifikasi. Karena depannya Vietnam berkeinginan menjadi negara yang memiliki pengelolaan hutan yang lestari,” kata Roslin, perwakilan dari Kementerian Kehutanan RI bidang Kerjasama Luar Negeri.

Pada dasarnya, kata Roslin, rombongan asal Vietnam ini berkeinginan besar untuk belajar bagaimana Kota Tarakan mengelola hutan secara lestari. Satu-satunya perusahaan yang dituju adalah PT Intracawood Manufacturing sebagai salah satu contoh yang sudah mendapatkan sertifikasi untuk pengelolaan hutannya.

Menurut Roslin, sertifikasi pengelolaan hutan ini memang penting. Pasalnya, di negara-negara importir seperti Amerika dan negara di Eropa lainnya, sangat mengutamakan produk kayu hasil hutan yang besertifikasi dan dikelola secara baik.

“Sekarang memang belum, tapi untuk ke depannya akan diperlukan persyaratan sertifikasi tersebut, bahwa kayu yang diterima adalah kayu yang sudah besertifikasi,” katanya.

Tentunya dengan tujuan agar kayu yang dikirim tersebut tidak bermasalah karena negara-negara maju menginginkan hutan dikelola secara baik dan benar.(ddq)

"Sosialisasi kesepakatan damai masih terus berjalan. Wakapolda Kaltim jalan terus. Memang masih ada perbedaan-perbedaan tetapi saya rasa kita sudah sepakat bahwa perdamiaan itu harus terwujud," ujarnya.

Ia mengatakan, bencana yang terjadi di Tarakan merupakan bagian dari bencana nasional yang juga terjadi di daerah lain. Bencana yang terjadi di Tarakan tidak seberapa jika dibandingkan di daerah lain. Seperti adanya penyerangan Markas Polsek.

"Bentrok dimana-mana terjadi. Bagaimana bencana-bencana nasional? Jadi apa keinginan pemerintah? Ini kita evaluasi semua termasuk kita, anda. Anda mungkin lebih tahu, jangan tanya sama saya. Kenapa bangsa ini begini karena rusak akhlak moral," katanya.

Ia juga enggan menjawab saat ditanya kaitan bentrok dengan kecemburuan sosial terkait distribusi sumber daya alam yang tidak merata.

"Kalau tanya ini kan memperkeruh masalah lagi. Upaya yang kita lakukan anggaran itu kan ada di DPR. Misalnya untuk pembangunan gedung kesenian, nanti juga kita akan tagih janji komisi III DPR untuk membantu Pemkot Tarakan termasuk kapal patroli. Nanti sama-sama kita ke Jakarta," katanya.

Mitos Jagoan di Balik Kerusuhan Tarakan (2-Selesai)

. Jumat, 08 Oktober 2010

Bugis Kajang Datang, Panglima Burung Takjub

Mitos Jagoan di Balik Kerusuhan Tarakan (2-Selesai) - Kaltim BorneoKISAH Panglima Kumbang dan Panglima Burung terus meluas. Termasuk di Nunukan. Yang tak kalah menariknya adalah cerita warga yang mengaitkan dengan kesaktian Bugis Kajang.

Panglima Kumbang dianggap sebagai perintis untuk bantuan awal dalam sebuah konflik. Jika kehadiran Panglima Kumbang belum menyelesaikan konflik, apakah itu untuk sebuah kemenangan atau untuk kesepakatan damai, maka barulah Panglima Burung didatangkan.

Seperti Panglima Kumbang, Panglima Burung juga berasal dari suku Dayak, Kalimantan Tengah. Panglima Burung akan datang setelah melakukan semedi di tempat tertentu. Kesaktiannya, mampu memasukkan roh kepada semua anggota pasukan di lapangan sehingga mereka mengamuk dalam kondisi di bawah alam sadar.

Di luar kesadaran itu, pedang-pedang di tangan menebas leher orang-orang yang telah ditentukan melalui ritual Panglima Burung. Ada yang bahkan mengatakan bahwa pedang itu melayang sendiri mencari lawan-lawan yang telah ditentukan sebelumnya.

Antara percaya dan tidak, kesaktian Panglima Burung inilah yang ditakuti para warga. Jangan-jangan itu bukan sekadar mitos. Jangan-jangan itu akan terjadi di Tarakan. Jangan-jangan pula akan meluas ke wilayah lainnya, seperti Samarinda dan Nunukan. Soalnya, kedua daerah ini segera menghelat pemilukada yang tentu saja rawan konflik.

Warga pun mendengar cerita bahwa kesaktian Panglima Burung itu pula yang digunakan di Sampit sehingga banyak jatuh korban dengan sadis. Ciri-cirinya adalah, leher korban dicincang karena kepala harus dijadikan tumbal atas ritual yang telah dilakukan.

"Boleh jadi itu hanya mitos. Namun, di sisi lain, disebutkan juga bahwa Panglima Burung sebetulnya sangat bijak. Dia orang baik. Ia dituakan. Kalau masih ada jalan damai, Panglima Burung memilih yang terbaik untuk kebaikan semua.

Dia itu simbol dari orang-orang sabar dan sederhana. Kalau sudah menyangkut harga diri dan penghinaan dan tidak ada jalan lain, barulah turun. Makanya, Panglima Burung tidak sembarang turun. Ia sangat selektif," kata Jaya, 78, tetua adat Tidung yang kesehariannya mencari rumput laut.

Lantas bagaimana menangkal kesaktian Panglima Burung? Seorang tetua adat asal Sulsel di Nunukan mengisahkan dengan bahasa konon. Katanya, kesaktian Panglima Kumbang dan Panglima Burung terjadi pada ratusan tahun silam. Yang ada sekarang tinggal generasinya.

Ia juga mengisahkan bahwa antara suku Tidung dan suku Bugis masih punya hubungan darah. Buktinya, banyak orang Bugis yang kawin dengan suku Tidung. Demikian pula sebaliknya.

Salah seorang anggota Kerukunan Keluarga Sulawesi Selatan, Jamil, ayahnya suku Bugis Makassar dan ibunya orang Tidung. Ayahnya termasuk salah seorang tokoh masyarakat yang sangat disegani di Nunukan. Sekkab Nunukan, Zainuddin HZ juga beristrikan orang Bugis.

Mungkin itu sebabnya sehingga antara suku Bugis dan Tidung selalu menghindari konflik berdarah. Ketika terjadi konflik di Nunukan pada 2008, ada kabar bahwa sekelompok orang dari Kajang turun dari kapal. Beberapa saat kemudian, kelompok yang terlibat konflik menghindar. Beberapa kawasan di Nunukan pun sepi. Konflik berdarah pun terhindar.

Beberapa warga di Nunukan mengaku sering mendengar bahwa kesaktian Panglima Burung pernah mendapat tantangan dari orang Bugis yang datang dari Kajang. Kisah ini lagi-lagi bernuansa mitos. Betapa tidak, ketika Panglima Burung mendemonstrasikan kesaktiannya, datang pula orang sakti dari Bugis Kajang.

Bugis Kajang menebar beras ke bumi. Hanya dengan mengayunkan telunjuknya dengan gerakan melingkar, ribuan biji beras itu pun bergerak sendiri hingga bersatu dalam sebuah onggokan.

Panglima Burung yang menyaksikan adegan itu, awalnya biasa-biasa saja. Namun, ketika dijelaskan, bahwa ini hanya contoh bagaimana orang Bugis Kajang mampu mengumpulkan lawan-lawannya yang tersebar di medan konflik seperti dengan mudahnya mengumpulkan biji-biji beras itu. Setelah lawan-lawannya terkumpul, barulah dengan mudah diperdayai. Mereka tidak bisa melawan.

"Namun demikian, orang Bugis tidak akan memperdayai orang-orang yang sudah tidak berdaya lagi," kata Ketua Perguruan Seni Bela Diri Tapak Suci Putra Muhammadiyah, Pimda 212 Kabupaten Nunukan, Andi Kaharuddin Andi Tokkong, Rabu 6 Oktober.

Perguruan ini berupaya mengakomodasi "orang-orang yang awalnya merasa jago" untuk dibina akhlaknya. Dikatakan, awalnya merasa jago, karena banyak anggotanya yang sebelum masuk perguruan ini, merasa jago berkelahi. Namun, ketika masuk perguruan dan menyalurkan kejagoannya, sedikit-demi sedikit diberi pembinaan akhlak sehingga pada akhirnya akan sadar sendiri dan tidak akan berkelahi.

Perguruan ini merangkul multietnis di Nunukan. Baik Bugis, Dayak, Tidung, maupun suku lainnya, seperti Jawa dan lain-lain. Strategi ini digunakan untuk menghindari konflik etnis di Nunukan.

Pembinanya berasal dari Parepare, yaitu Pendekar Utama Sukri Saleh. Pendekar Madya-nya dari tokoh masyarakat suku Tidung, yaitu Zainuddin HZ yang juga Sekkab Nunukan. Pelatihnya dari pemuda Dayak dan Tidung.

Jumlah kader sabuk biru 23 orang yang terdiri atas multietnis di Nunukan. Persebarannya di empat kecamatan, yaitu Kecamatan Nunukan, Nunukan Selatan, Sebatik, dan Sebatik Barat. Termasuk yang dalam proses di Kecamatan Sembakung dan Lumbis.

Lantas apakah ini nantinya tidak akan menjadi laskar-laskar dan jagoan-jagoan yang bisa memicu konflik? "O, tidak. Tidak sama sekali. Kita ini daerah perbatasan. Kita butuh cadangan bela negara. Para pemuda harus ada bekal bela diri. Bukan hanya bela diri, melainkan juga akhlakul kharimah.

Ini bahkan wahana pemersatu untuk menghindarkan tumbuhnya primordialisme kesukuan yang berlebihan. Dengan demikian, akan menghindarkan dari hal-hal yang memicu konflik horizontal," kata Kaharuddin yang ditemui usai salat asar berjemaah dengan anggotanya di sekitar pusat latihan, kemarin.

Kaharuddin yang juga sejarawan itu menuturkan, bahwa sebagaimana orang Bugis, suku Tidung juga memiliki sejarah tersendiri. Mereka juga hidup berpindah-pindah. Mereka sesungguhnya tidak menyukai kekerasan.

Hal ini dapat dilihat dari kesenian mereka, yaitu tari Zapin (Jeppeng) yang kemelayu-melayuan. Ada kemiripan dengan kesenian Bugis. Ada bahkan komunitas Bugis yang melakoni tarian ini dalam kebudayaan mereka.

Kalau ditelusuri sejarah, kerajaan Tidung berdiri pada 1551-1916, didahului oleh Kerajaan Tidung Kuno dan digantikan oleh Tarakan. Raja terakhirnya adalah Monarki Amiril Rasyid bergelar Datoe Radja Laoet Datoe Adil.

Kerajaan Tidung atau dikenal pula dengan nama Kerajaan Tarakan (Kalkan/Kalka), yaitu kerajaan yang memerintah suku Tidung di Utara Kalimantan Timur, berkedudukan di Pulau Tarakan dan berakhir di Salimbatu.

Sebelumnya terdapat dua kerajaan di kawasan ini. Selain Kerajaan Tidung, terdapat pula Kesultanan Bulungan yang berkedudukan di Tanjung Palas. Berdasarkan silsilah yang ada, diterangkan bahwa di pesisir Timur pulau Tarakan, yakni kawasan Binalatung sudah ada Kerajaan Tidung Kuno (The Ancient Kingdom of Tidung), kira-kira tahun 1076-1156.

Mereka kemudian berpindah ke pesisir Barat pulau Tarakan, yakni di kawasan Tanjung Batu, kira-kira pada tahun 1156-1216. Lalu bergeser lagi, tetapi tetap di pesisir Barat, yakni ke kawasan sungai Bidang, kira-kira pada tahun 1216-1394. Setelah itu berpindah lagi yang relatif jauh dari pulau Tarakan, yakni ke kawasan Pimping bagian Barat dan kawasan Tanah Kuning, berkisar tahun 1394-1557.

Sebuah sumber menerangkan bahwa riwayat tentang kerajaan maupun pemimpin (raja) yang pernah memerintah di kalangan suku Tidung terbagi atas beberapa tempat yang sekarang sudah terpisah menjadi beberapa daerah kabupaten.

Daerah-daerah itu antara lain Kabupaten Bulungan (Salimbatu, Kecamatan Tanjung Palas Tengah), (Malinau Kota, Kabupaten Malinau), Sesayap, Kabupaten Tana Tidung, (Sembakung, Kabupaten Nunukan (Kota Tarakan), dan lain-lain hingga ke daerah Sabah (Malaysia) bagian Selatan.

Referensi ini menunjukkan bahwa suku Tidung memang memiliki tradisi berpindah, mirip dengan orang Bugis. Oleh karena itu, untuk menyebut orang Bugis sebagai pendatang dan orang-orang Tidung sebagai penduduk asli, masih memerlukan kajian mendalam. Itu pula sebabnya, ada anekdot bahwa sesama pendatang tidak boleh berkonflik.

Tak heran ketika mitos Panglima Burung dengan orang-orang sakti dari Kajang tadi memilih menghindari konflik berdarah. Buktinya, konflik berdarah di Tarakan begitu cepat redam ketika ada pula kabar bahwa kelompok suku Bugis juga akan bergerak ke Tarakan. (*)
