NEGERI SEMBILAN

The name “Negeri Sembilan” was formed in conjunction with the installation of Raja Melewar as the first Yamtuan (Ruler) of the state. Nine village heads from nine villages installed the Minangkabau prince as their lawful ruler. The word “negeri” was borrowed from ‘Minangkabau’s ‘nagari’ (http://halaqah.net/v10/index.php?topic=1387.0) to refer to ‘an area the size of a village’ (http://nurisb.tripod.com/SEJARAH.htm). Hence, the toponymy of “Negeri Sembilan” refers to the nine villages in the state, namely, 1) Sungai Ujong 2) Rembau 3) Jelebu 4) Johol 5) Ulu Muar 6) Inas 7) Gunung Pasir 8) Terachi 9) Jempol (http://harithsidek.blogspot.com/2012/08/bagaimana-negeri-negeri-di-malaysia.html).

Nama Negeri Sembilan terbentuk sempena peristiwa pertabalan Raja Melewar sebagai Yamtuan Negeri Sembilan yang pertama. Sembilan orang penghulu dari sembilan buah mukim dan luak telah menabalkan seorang anak raja dari Minangkabau itu sebagai pemerintah yang sah. Perkataan 'Negeri' telah diambil dari istilah ‘nagari’ (http://halaqah.net/v10/index.php?topic=1387.0) yang biasa digunakan oleh masyarakat Minangkabau. ‘Nagari’ membawa pengertian ‘satu kawasan atau daerah yang kira-kira seluas luak atau mukim atau kampung’ (http://nurisb.tripod.com/SEJARAH.htm) . Oleh yang demikian, “Negeri Sembilan”, dari sudut toponimi, merujuk kepada sembilan buah mukim atau luak, iaitu 1) Sungai Ujong 2) Rembau 3) Jelebu 4) Johol 5) Ulu Muar 6) Inas 7) Gunung Pasir 8) Terachi 9) Jempol (http://harithsidek.blogspot.com/2012/08/bagaimana-negeri-negeri-di-malaysia.html) yang terdapat dalam negeri tersebut.
