Sejarah / History pulau Sawu

Pulau Sabu juga dikenal sebagai Savu atau Sawu. Warga di pulau itu sendiri menyebut pulau mereka Rai Hawu, yang berarti Tanah Hawu. Dan orang-orang Sabu menyebut diri Do Hawu. Nama resmi yang digunakan oleh pemerintah daerah adalah Sabu. Orang Sabu menjelaskan, bahwa nama pulau ini berasal dari nama Ga Hawu, nama salah satu dari nenek moyang mereka, yang dianggap datang ke pulau pertama. Kontak awal adalah dengan Belanda VOC pada tahun 1648. Referensi ke Sabu dari periode selalu menyangkut tentara Sabu, tentara bayaran atau budak. Pada 1674, awak sekoci Belanda dibantai di Timur Sabu, setelah kapal mereka kandas. Belanda merespon dengan membentuk aliansi dengan raja dari Seba, sehingga pasukan bisa dikirim untuk membalas. Namun, mereka gagal masuk benteng Hurati, di B’olou Desa Sabu Timur, seperti yang dikelilingi oleh tiga tembok pertahanan. Untuk menyelamatkan muka, kekuatan Belanda menerima pembayaran dalam bentuk budak, emas dan manik-manik.

Sabu Island also known as Savu or Sawu. Residents on the island itself call their island Rai Hawu, which means Land of Hawu. And Sabu people call themselves Do Hawu. The official name used by local government is Sabu. Sabu people explains, that the island’s name is derived from the name of Ga Hawu, the name of one of their ancestors, who are considered came to the island first. Initial contact was with the Dutch Vereenigde Oost-Indische Companie in 1648. References to Savu from the period invariably concern Savunese soldiers, mercenaries or slaves. In 1674, the crew of a Dutch sloop were massacred in East Savu, after their vessel ran aground. The Dutch responded by forming an alliance with the raja of Seba, so troops could be sent in to retaliate. However, they failed to enter the fortress of Hurati, in B’olou Village of Eastern Savu, as it was ringed by three defensive walls. To save face, the Dutch force accepted payment in the form of slaves, gold and beads.
