History of the kingdom of Bacukiki, 15th century

Google translation

Bacukiki was a major port and trade dealer in the archipelago in the 15th and 16th centuries. With its position, it became a royal seizure in Sulawesi. Noted some royal who ever conquered Bacukiki namely the Kingdom of Wajo, Gowa and Bone and Kingdom Day (Pangkajene).

When Bacukiki was ruled by the Kingdom of Gowa under the leadership of King Gowa X Tunipalangga (1546 – 1565), many people of Bacukiki were transferred to Gowa, including Malays who had established business representatives in Bacukiki. And that is the origin of many Malay settlers in Makassar (Gowa).

When Gowa was conquered by Arung Palakka from Bone, then Bacukiki automatically becomes a conquered area as well. Arung Palakka fights Datu Bakke (Wajo) and asks Datu Bakke to surrender. The Dutchman who felt an opportunity to help Datu Bakke, offered to help him to evacuate with three ships from the port of Bacukiki.
