Until now publishing a new book in the world of architecture in Indonesia is still relatively very step, when in fact that Indonesia consists of 17,508 islands with more than race and language, save the heritage or cultural heritage is very rich and diverse.
No exception to the cultural heritage in the form of traditional architecture that seems so simple and really the difference between the architecture in one region to another.
Who does not know the architecture joglo in Jogja and Solo, architecture sumatera bogonjondo west, architecture tongkonan in Toraja, Meru in bali, honai in papua, and others - others.

Most traditional architecture with the work even Terpanah - western architecture with a label - a label that looks more prestigious: the modern. late modern, new modern, post modern. Only a few architects are interested in researching and publishing books about traditional architecture, or the use of concepts or rules of traditional design in the new architecture. Some famous names are: Romo Mangun (with the monumental work of the church - a church or a place of pilgrimage like Sendang Sono and housing for the poor of Ledok Code Jogjakarta). Andhi Moersid (with his work with the mosque said naum). Joseph Pryotomo (with a variety of writing and books - books that have been published). Hasan Poerbo, Johan Silas, Suswondo, Bismo Sutedjo, Han Awal, and some of the characters - other characters.
It is very encouraging that the architect - the architect Yori Antar easy way and those who joined in the community of young architectural Indonesia (AMI) began to appear pace of thought and ideas that escape from the pressures of ideas - ideas or State Cekokan west.
Realize that the house - traditional houses in Indonesia in general and in South Sorong regency traditional Papuan tribes of the house Maybrat Imian Sawiat in particular should be preserved, because it is the ancestral heritage, which includes the value of purity - the traditional architectural values. In this context the author tried to summon a bit of writing about the traditional houses tribe this Maybrat Imian Sawiat.
Easy - I hope with the message of this book would be used as a reference that contains the data - the data of traditional architecture Maybrat Imian Sawiat tribe, and used as comparative material for enthusiasts with all things traditional to create a more perfect work.
We realize that this treatise certainly no shortage - the lack or weakness, it's like nothing that had cracked ivory. Therefore all the scolds, and critics said the building is our hope for the perfection of writing - writing the next. Our expectations may have successors who will be more talented introduce traditional architecture is Maybrat Imian Sawiat more perfect than the writings of today.
With all humility the writer to offer a sense of deep gratitude - it to:

Of origin - his suggestion? The tetuah tribe Maybrat, Imian, Sawiat, has hereditary passage about the traditional houses tribe Maybrat, Imian, Sawiat. From the history recounted that the traditional architectural interest Maybrat, Imian, Sawiat, was first built by the ancestors of two centuries years ago. Both men are too, and sur, which too is called to the rope and sur-called for the timber. Ceriteranya traditional home of the tribe Maybrat, Imian, Sawiat, (halite-bol wofle) constructed by following the way the bird makes its nest (ru chlen habe) which was then common ancestor called 'sur' sat and watched the bird deftly brought branches - branches wood to make a nest in the tree shade, and then came the idea that 'time, it can make a bird house for her and why I do not'? This question arises because of his early life Maybrat, Imian, Sawiat, they used the caves as a primary residence.

As long bird watching it (sur) was determined to make a home, then he started cutting down trees for use in a home, after he tried to cut wood for him after he (sur) meletakannya on trees used as koloum with a strong idea that will so he let it go for next lift off again but when it fell, but he tried it again and again until he (sur) trying to climb the tree used to make a nest of birds in order to look closely at how closely sticks to put into strong. When he (sur) climbed the tree and tried many times but the results are not perfect then came his brother named "too" and provide input that you can not just put it that way but must use a rope that I take to be strong, but the proposal was not accepted or sur ignore in the belief that he could build it without a rope (tie). Yet with all sorts of ways with which none are successful then he decided to accept his brother's earlier proposal, and when he used the rope as the binding was successful, then he took his brother (too) that let you both have to make a house for us as bird, sur offer too, showing a bird's nest above the tree branch, and was too menerimany then they both began to make a home for them for the first time. This is where the history of the origins of traditional tribal houses Maybrat Imian Sawiat built.

No one knows for sure where the actual incident where the first (first to make the house), but overall is among the region expressed Maybrat or Imian or Sawiat, but here we can guess the area was Maybrat region, the reason for the name of the originator or creator of house maybrat language so that it can be concluded that the events occurred in the region Maybrat. According to the expression of the elders that traditional houses Maybrat existing Imian Sawiat centuries years ago.

As the story of the house Maybrat, Imian, Sawiat, that house commonly called (halite) is built with wood and rattan, which was built in the past several centuries before the Christian gospel in masukknya for Mansinam unite the people who live alone and hostile.
Around several centuries before the Christian gospel in the entry Mansinam, Maybrat Imian Sawiat tribe are not familiar with the tribe, or village, but known by clan-Margais-keret that inhabit each area or land on their own ancestral lands. Maybrat people's lives, Imian, Sawiat, at that time was the personal lives of uncompromising, they live based on ego, their minds tend to think about having power over the clan or other keret in a region, the fight to get it, and how as someone who could conquer a keret-clan or clan to clan or clan-keret others.

After entry of the Christian gospel in the island in 1855 with mansinam religion spread more quickly through the region Maybrat Imian Sawiat brought by the evangelists of God, actually Maybrat Imian Sawiat people are familiar with the life of friends. This user-friendly life in the saying that starts from the war itself, which is when one clan could defeat the clan istiri one of the people who killed a wife for him, as well as for children left abandoned by the old people who were killed in the lift as foster care. Children - children in foster care as children of the clan / keret which can not be killed in the change clan / keretnya so that the children or wives of the victims of war as a man who could be able to call their language to their marga-marga/keret-keret who left to gather into one group consisting of two genera, three genera and so forth so much. Unity and kinship of Maybrat, Imian, Sawiat, became more intimate when they begin to recognize the education or theology Initiation wiyon-wofle.
Thought Maybrat Imian Sawiat people become more mature with a touch of insight with the introduction of modern literal Christian gospel that teaches you as to require that every human being can not help but to love his enemies, as they had received from wiyon-wofle education, so at that time terbentukklah an association which is known by the name of the village where the village was in headed by a village chief. Entrusted as the mayor is someone who is an honorable man stratanya or so-called 'weight', someone said to weight because it meets the criteria as follows: He was of noble birth, has the right large land area, personality, ability in the world wars, hunting, has a natural strength, has relationships with other village heads, high-minded, capable of doing big parties such as the initiation wiyon-wofle and ready to bear all the issues that made people.

Please note that the housing Maybrat Imian tribe is located in Palm forest natural area with nature are very hard. In this case can be illustrated that Papua's natural environment in general and housing Maybrat Imian Sawiat tribe known as the full nature of the mountain - mountains, valleys, steep cliffs, forests, bushes and hillsides. This will be a challenge for the home directly related to the homogeneous nature to survive, because in addition to adjusting to the influence of surrounding nature, as well as moisture problems caused by nature.
The wind is blowing from the mainland at night can change the temperature becomes very cold air and rainfall of this area occurred during the year. This of course brings its own problems which is very important to note for the gardening farmers and hunters. The success or sustainability of this housing to survive until now, meant to prove that keterujiannya to anticipate climatic conditions of their environment.
