The name of the land of Minahasa has been changed several times: it starts with Batacina-Malesung-Minaesa and then finally the current name Minahasa, which means “becoming one united”. This name dates from the war against the Kingdom of Bolaang Mangondow. In 670, North Sulawesi never developed any large empire, while in North Sulawesi the leaders of the different tribes, who all spoke different languages, met by a stone known as Watu Pinawetengan. There they founded a community of independent states, who would form one unit and stay together and would fight any outside enemies if they were attacked.
