Google translation

Begin of the sixteenth century was the beginning of the development of small kingdoms in Bulukumba in terms of economy, defense and, as well, could exercise their power so well as ruler of the kingdom. It’s just that threats and challenges often come and go.
The first kingdom in Bulukumba was Kajang Amma Toa. There are some other small kingdoms in Bulukumba.
Kingdoms in  Bulukumba region century 16 until century 20:

(kerajaan = kingdom)

* Kerajaan Tanete
* Kerajaan Gantarang Kindang, Gangking
* Kerajaan Hero Langnge-Langnge Herlang
* Kerajaan Ujung Loe
* Kerajaan Tiro
* Kerajaan Kajang
* Kerajaan Ara & Tanah beru

In the 16th-17th century the kingdom of Bone and the kingdom of Gowa fought in the seizure of power territory ie bangkeng buki ‘area, which is in the area of Bulukumba now.
Finally, these two kingdoms re-reconcile and supported the kings in Bulukumba to maintain their territories.
Because they already know the cunning of the Dutch and its allies, they pitted all the kings to fight each other. Because the Dutch thought if all the kingdom were united, it is more difficult to master them.
