Negeri Sembilan – Pentadbiran dan Adat Kini

Adat Perpatih was brought to the Malay Peninsula by the Minang society from Sumatera who retained their customs when they migrated in the 14th century.  This traditional custom which is passed down orally covers a whole range of aspects of social life including the appointment of Yamtuan and Undang, punishment for breach of custom, marriage and regulations governing marriage, inheritance and other matters. In Peninsular Malaysia, the Adat Perpatih is practised only in Negeri Sembilan, Naning in Malacca and by descendants of the Minangkabau people in Kampung Lukut, Kota Tinggi, Johor. Nevertheless, the Adat Perpatih which is practised here today has adapted with the practice and custom of the indigenous people, who are the original inhabitant of the state, who practice local customs.

En. Mohd Khairil in his talk will discuss the Perpatih Adat administration system in Negeri Sembilan and its place in today’s administration.

—————————————————–

Adat Perpatih telah dibawa ke Semenanjung Tanah Melayu oleh masyarakat Minang dari Sumatera yang telah mengekalkan adat resam mereka apabila berhijrah pada kurun ke-14. Adat tradisi yang diturunkan secara lisan ini, merangkumi secara menyeluruh pelbagai aspek kehidupan masyarakat termasuk pelantikan Yamtuan dan Undang, hukuman perlanggaran adat, peraturan nikah dan kahwin, pewarisan dan sebagainya. Di Semenanjung Malaysia, Adat Perpatih hanya diamalkan di Negeri Sembilan, Naning di Melaka dan penduduk berketurunan Minangkabau di Kampung Lukut, di Kota Tinggi, Johor. Walau bagaimanapun, Adat  Perpatih yang dipraktikkan hari telah mengalami penyesuaian dengan amalan dan adat Orang Asli yang merupakan penduduk asal negeri, yang mengamalkan adat tempatan.

En. Mohd Khairil akan membincangkan tentang sistem pentadbiran Adat Perpatih di Negeri Sembilan dan kedudukannya dalam pentadbiran masa kini.
