Herman Usman

This study examined the existence of Ternate City that known as the region on the one hand has the power custom through the structure of the Sultanate of Ternate, and on the other hand, into a modern city with the structure of government bureaucracy. The relation of two powers, sometimes spawned opposition and conflict (dualism), sometimes also present the mutual relations (duality), mutually beneficial. The analysis of the city with the two powers, by using qualitative methods and explanation approach. The results of the field study explain, traditional power structures through the Sultanate of Ternate has dominance over indigenous peoples (in term of Ternate language balakusu se kano kano), but also hold political power and rule by the agent (Deputy Mayor of Ternate, Arifin Djafar), while the governance structure of Ternate, since the era of Mayor Syamsir Andili with cultural themes or vision-mission, which is Ternate Towards Civil Society. The era of Mayor Burhan Abdurrrahman, the same things also is done by his vision and mission of Bahari Berkesan. However, both Syamsir Andili and Burhan Abdurrahman can not set up the town well. The station and the market became the economic area interest between the working units (SKPD). Sociologically, this study concludes that between traditional and modern power, there is a pull so strongly in structural interest that influence and dominate the culture (structure dominated culture), through social action actor with the social practices recursively. The role of the townspeople a processor still not able to negotiate these two forces. Therefore, the urban social development, should be directed to the public interest, and not for the economic and political interest, so that the social integration of Ternate City in the future can be created
