History kingdom of Binuang
Based on Andi Muhammad Natsir’s narrative, the Binuang kingdom is located in Poli Mandar district, West Sulawesi close to the South Sulawesi border. This kingdom was the second largest kingdom after the Balanipa kingdom in Mandar, in which the two kingdoms have cooperated both in economy, culture, and others.
The government system in Binuang at that time was carried out from generation to generation. The king of Binuang at that time was known as Ammassangan, who according to Mandar’s history, had helped the kingdom of Bone in fighting Arung Panikian. On the basis of brotherhood, King Amassangan left for Bone with selected troops including Tapengo and Takumba.
Upon his return from helping the Bone kingdom to Binuang Tapengo immediately arranged his work tools properly with the following arrangement, one of the top brass of the Binuang kingdom named Sippajo Langi brought a wood called Binuang, this wood was then plugged in a Binuang kingdom area while taking an oath that he was plugging in the wood would become the capital of the kingdom. So that was when one of the kingdoms belonging to the Pitu Ba’bana Binangaini alliance was called the Binuang kingdom.

Toerang Batu Dance
The Toerang Batu dance, also known as the Mandar War Dance, is believed to be the key behind the success of the Binuang Kingdom in conquering the surrounding kingdoms, long ago.
In the past, the Toerang Batu Dance was a dance performed by soldiers of the Binuang kingdom as a special ritual to arouse the courage and enthusiasm of soldiers who would fight before heading to the battlefield.
Before the Toerang Batu Dance begins, it will be preceded by several sacred rituals such as giving offerings and praying. Then the soldiers who will fight are tested first by jumping over eggs that are placed on a rock as high as one meter more, for soldiers who escape will be able to participate in the war, while those who do not escape will be placed in the logistics section of the troops. Then the event continued with the Toerang Batu Dance.
