About the kingdom of Bada

Google translation

Lore tribes are often called Napu people or Bada people. They live in two sub-districts within the district of Poso, namely North Lore and Lore Selatan sub-districts, in the province of Central Sulawesi.

At first the inhabitants of Poso were under the rule of the kings of Poso, King of Napu, King of Mori, King of Tojo, King of Una Una and King of Bungku, who had nothing to do with each other.

As the successor of the king, Siominanga was appointed as his father’s successor. He is known as Mokole Siominanga, which means king of Siominanga. He no longer finds it difficult to rule, because he had always been with his father since his childhood. He is also liked by his people. The kingdom of Balinggi reaches the height of its glory under his rule. Some jealous kings like the king of Bada, Lore, Napu, and Besoa are located south of the kingdom of Balinggi. Three times they attacked the kingdom. The first attack was launched by the kingdom of Bada, but successfully broken by the kingdom of Balinggi. Because of hurt, the kingdom of Bada joined the kingdom of Napu to attack the kingdom of Balinggi back, but the attack was still successfully paralyzed by the kingdom of Balinggi. The next attack of the kingdom of Bada, the kingdom of Napu, and the kingdom of Besoa rejoined to attack the kingdom of Balinggiu. Human casualties are falling until blood flows the river that floods the villages.
