Abstract

Tanimbar in this study is an archipelago located in the southeastern part of the Maluku islands. The archipelago was initially uninhabited; therefore, the mention of Tanimbar was based on considerations relating to the origin of the people who inhabited the island. The word Tanimbar comes from the word Tanempar (Nistimur language), Tanebar (Weslyeta language) and Tnebar (Fordata language) which has the same meaning that is 'stranded'. The word stranded is aimed at people who come from various islands or regions of Indonesia, especially Eastern Indonesia, as there are those who come from Halmahera, Ambon, Seram, Banda, Kai, Aru, Sulawesi (Bugis Makassar and Buton), some even come from the island of Timor. On this basis, the indigenous tribes in the Tanimbar archipelago are still unknown. So, the word Tanimbar can be used to show people (Tanimbar people), also used to indicate the area (Tanimbar islands). Tanimbar which is an archipelago. This allows most of the people to inhabit coastal areas. Based on these settlements, their activities are more likely to go to the sea, so that the equipment used is related to their activities, to the point that they become symbols in every community in Tanimbar. For the example a boat building on Tanimbar analogous to the structure of the community in each village in Tanimbar. On this basis, the 'pamaru depan pamaru belakang, which is two parts of a boat building, is used as the title of this thesis. So far, Tanimbar is only seen from the historical perspective of Maluku, especially Southeast Maluku. Therefore, if you hold on to that view, Tanimbar's history is very neglected from investigations into Indonesian history. It is recognized that Tanimbar's political line is one area that is very remote and does not attract the attention of historical researchers to research the area. But where is the history of the parts or islands that also have their own history? Is Tanimbar an appendage to the Unitary State of the Republic of Indonesia?
