History of the kingdom of Alita
In the past there was a confederation of five Bugis kingdoms located on the west and north of Lake Tempe and Sidenreng on the southwestern peninsula of South Sulawesi. These kingdom were among others Sidenreng, Sawitto, Suppa, Rappang and Alitta. These five Ajattappareng kingdoms were prosperous around the 1700s with abundant crops, that eventually became the battle for the great kingdoms of the kingdom of Luwu, the kingdom of Bone and the kingdom of Gowa. In this competition the kingdom of Gowa finally succeeded in intervening in the system of government and making alliance of these five Ajatappareng kingdoms under its protection.
Later Ajatappareng Kingdom was divided into four districts and one municipality. Sawitto, Alitta and the north-central part of Suppaq, most of which were Pinrang districts, which had previously been inhabited for a number of settlements, that were not part of the Ajattappareng kingdom before 1600. These settlements included Batu Lappaq, Kassaq and Letta, formerly part of the Massenrempulu Confederation known as the Five Massenrempulu (five mountains on the edge of the mountains), and a number of other small independent settlements such as Supirang, inhabited by people with language, culture and ethnicity associated with Mamasa-Toraja. While Letta is under the jurisdiction of Sawitto after being attacked by the Boné kingdom in 1685 for killing his royal envoy.
