Early settlements of the minangkabaus community in Selangor

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

In the studies of land and forest exploration, as well as the establishment of new settlements in the Malay Peninsula, one could not neglect the presence of Indonesian settlers in general and the Minangkabau in particular. Their custom to travel served as a catalyst in the development of rural settlements in the Peninsular Malay states, thus making the relationship of history, blood ties and cultural ties between the Minangkabaus and Malay Peninsula throughout the history. In the British colonial era, the colonial documents showed that the Minangkabau settlers had been very active in playing a direct role in the implementation of the colonial policies that helped to ensure the retention of the characteristics of indigenous rural settlements. Although there are still uncertainties about the exact arrival date of the Minangkabau to the Malay Peninsula, their existence could be traced through their settlements which are not only concentrated in Negeri Sembilan, but also in Melaka, Pahang, Perak, Johor and Selangor. In Selangor, their settlements concentrated in areas such as Hulu Langat, Hulu Selangor, Klang and around Kuala Lumpur. This paper aims to discuss the Minangkabau settlements in the Malay Peninsula, particularly in Selangor.
