pandehost
BATAK - The origin of the Nias people are often the subject of debate among the people of Nias, because until now too benyak version of ORIGINS OF NIAS, and not one opinion among the experts / writers who can serve as an absolute truth that can accepted and trusted by the people of Nias. Therefore, I feel compelled to present this paper, which is a summary of my experience of Indigenous elders Nias, as a trigger the spirit of the people of Nias to keep track of our origins.

NIAS.jpegLegend NIAS.jpegMenurut highly trusted by some of the people of Nias, especially those living in rural areas, that the origin of the Nias people are descended from the sky (NIDADA MOROI BA Lang). This is dilatarbelangi by limited understanding / knowledge about science, so assume that in this world there is only one land is just land or Tano Niha Nias Island, Nias that is why people call themselves as Ono Niha.
Given some of the terms in the language Niasnya inappropriate when translated into Indonesian, then I write it in Bahasa Nias Region, and in particular emphases I also will write the translation in the Indonesian language. And each particular stage I will pick a meaning that is contained didalamnnya, which can be a material reflection / learning for us.
