The Altaian Reach or Aklanan Reach (Aklanaavan Ri in Kamuran) is a region of northeastern Altaia that has historically been settled and heavily influenced culturally by people from West Davai, mostly Sriaav and Ameratsu Samzayids but also minorities of Yan-Xiangren migrants who were brought over as labourers for Kamuran overlords. Kamura had been for most of the past millennium the dominate Davaian power in the region during the Hanayakaav Era when the productive Altaian colonies were a source of great wealth and prestige during the dynasty's reign. At the dawn of the 75th century following rising disillusionment with Hanayakav rule and a weakened Empire in the face of Anarian Imperialism the Altaian Reach rose up in a secessionist rebellion, the largest such insurrection the Kamuran Empire had faced up to that time. In the year 7508 RH or 842 SK the Aklanaavan Ri, after several years of armed conflict, was recognised as a confederation of independent city states and communes.

Etymology

The region is given the name in Kamuran, Aklanaavan Ri with the name Aklana referring to the continent of Altaia which Sriaav explorers names after the Aka'lm peoples native to the northern-eastern regions that were explored and incorporated into the Hanayakaav Empire. The designation Ri is the closest Kamuran term for 'Reach' to describe Kamuran imperial sovereignty reaching Northeastern Altaia.

History

Early History

The Altaian Reach was the first region of Altaia to be settled by the ancestors of modern native Altaians who travelling across the Artic Strait, which may have been above sea level at that time, crossed over from Davai no earlier than 30,000 BP. Due to the proximity of this region to Northwest Davai, their is understood to have been several migrations back and forth across the strait over thousands of years.

Around 6000 RH the Samzayid Expansions brought Ameratsu peoples to Altaian shores from the Sriu Peninsula in Davai. They were successful traders and explorers of both the Artic and Shangti Seas and brought new trade goods to the Aka'lm societies native to the Reach. After the beginning of this Trans-Shangti trade network, the previously tribal societies of the region rapidly developed into increasingly complex states, the largest and most extensive being in the Nuss Basin accessible via ports in the Reach.

By 6800 RH the Kamuran Empire under the Hanayakaav Dynasty was consolidating its monopoly over the Trans-Shangti trade web and Sriaav traders and settlers were strengthening Kamuran dominance over the ports of the region.

The Sriaav in Altaia

For a period of roughly seven centuries the Reach was governed by a string of Sriaav colonies under the sovereignty of the Hanayakaav Empire, still hosting a large minority of Samzayids who had been incorporated into the Empire mostly peacefully. The majority of conflict during this time was between the Kamurans and various successive Aka'lm imperial states based in the interior. Throughout this period Sriaav settlement and acculturation stayed along the coasts, especially along the shore of the Lower Nuss Basin. In the far northeast, along the Shangti shore Sriaav influence did extend up to the foothills of the Shucian Range and significant agricultural and mining activity was overseen by Sriaav overlords who imported Aka'lm and Xiangren labourers to work to make the colonies profitable.

Beginning in the 7300's, the Kamuran mercantile network began to break in the face of Anarian imperialist pressure. The Anarian navies bested the Kamuran fleets in several battles and Kamura was weakened and evidently at a technological disadvantage. The Altaian magnates were increasingly frustrated with the Hanayakaav who seemed more concerned with preservation of their dynastic rule than the affairs of all Kamurans. In 7508, following a violent insurrection, the Reach declared itself an independent confederation of city-states and communes, the first and to date only independent Sriaav-majority state to exist outside the Empire of Kamura for nearly a thousand years.
