Indonesia is rich in art and culture, which are intertwined with religion and age-old tradition. Hundred years ago Indonesia is a kingdom country with their tradition law. Indonesia begun democratic nation after celebrating freedom in August 17th, 1945. After more than 60 years as democratic country, in fact it is not a good solution to development social, economic, religion and culture even this condition just make confuses role and law in Indonesia. Corruption happens in many places; the daily newspaper, news program on TV and radio have reported corruption are done everywhere. It is always connect to the democratic law. Corruption has happened many years and today it becomes a bad culture in Indonesia.
Sumbawa government with LATS (Lembaga Adat Tana Samawa), decided to return the original culture and hope it will fix the law problem in Indonesia, specially in Sumbawa. H. Daeng MA Kaharuddin officially designated as sultan of Sumbawa with title of “SULTAN KAHARUDDIN IV”. Based on the assessment letter inaugural number 05/MR-LATS/2.1/1432.2011 dated 10 January 2011 or traveling Sultan of Sumbawa in 1432 on the inaugural set , Daeng MA Kharudin confirmed as the Sultan of Sumbawa with the little sultan, Sultan Kaharuddin IV. In an assessment is also outlined the duties and responsibilities a sovereign among other thing, mandated to be able to preserve and develop indigenous Tana Samawa. Also toward the achievement of Sumbawa religious, society, modern and democratic. H. Mas’un (Lecturer Paracendikia University of Sumbawa) argues that Sultan present for support the government in Sumbawa Island. He said Sultan is a good figure in social and culture, so from it Sultan has power to command people in psychology and moral, because in the face of the current era needs clear thinking and left to the God.
Also from this event most people think the coronation Sultan of Sumbawa is not important for government in era glottalization, where they think Sumbawa is a modern country with democratic system and has Region can handle each problem in Sumbawa island, and They said the coronation sultan of Sumbawa just spend a lot of money from APBD and will disturb the government activities. DR. H. IWAN JAZADI, S.pd,Med,P.hd, said that is normal for young people because for them Sultan is a new figure in their life and of course they will not accept it directly. Beside it they are not understand what the role and old tradition of Sumbawa for the government. Then DR. Iwan Jazadi add his argument that exactly Sultan has the most important figure for government, because Sultan has large relationship to the other kingdom not only in Sumbawa island but also in many other places such as Makassar, Dompu, Bima, Lombok and Java. Where it all will support and help the government to manage in economic, social, culture and religion In Sumbawa Besar.
However, we should support the coronation sultan of Sumbawa as Samawa culture, always keep it as our inheritance in Tana Samawa, and make it everlasting. The lastly let us a look at the lawas (poem) below written by Ahmad Zuhri Muhtar.
“Dalam telas tau samawa Sapulu saleng no milin
Sai’ mo tu saling pendi
Dua maris saling sayang
Katelu tu saling sadu
Empat mo saling sakiki
Saleng tulung de kelima
Enam mo saling satingi
Maris rajin saling jango
Saleng satotang nan sifat
Dalam telas saling beme
Sepulu saling santuret”.
The meaning of lawas (poem) above is;
“There are ten roles in Sumbawa culture,
The first is make a relationship
second is Peace
third is Believe to the other
fourth is always understanding
fifth is cooperation
sixth is always support to the friend
Always keep the relation
Always remind is the habit In their life cooperation is principle
Always make the agreement before doing something”.
