Abstract

In the coastal of Triton Bay, Kaimana Regency, West Papua Province, there had been a commercial port of Mawara Island (now called Miwara Island), which had been busy visited by traders from Seram. The commercial port had an important position as a traditional trading center in the past, which connects Papua and Maluku, especially East Seram area. The lack of historical sources about the ancient harbor causes the glory of past trading in Triton Bay, which connects cultural nodes of Indonesian archipelago, become rarely known to people. This study was conducted to determine: (1) the benefits of Miwara Island commercial port in regional trade in the past, (2) the influence of trade on socio-cultural life in Triton Bay area, (3) historical evidence related to commerce at that time. This is qualitative research, and data were collected through literature review, interviews, and observations. The results show that Miwara Island commercial port as a trading center in the past in Triton Bay, Kaimana, West Papua had provided social and economic benefits in this region. The influence of trade at that time, i.e.: established kinship relations with Seram people through marriage, as well as cultural acculturation. The position of Miwara Island commercial port as a trading center had been existed long time before the establishment of Namatota's power, who collaborated with traders from Seram in this region.
