West Sumatraball is another kind of 1-icon.png 1ball which migrates to interior of Sumatra and settled in West Sumatra's highlands from east.

Islam-icon.png Islam entered in 14th century. With the entry of Islam, the customary rules that are contrary to the teachings of Islam began to be replaced with the Islamic-based law. There is a famous Minangkabau custom proverb, "Adat basandi syarak, syarak basandi Kitabullah", which means that the Minangkabau adat is based on Islam, while Islam is based on the Qur'an. But in some cases, several systems and methods of adat are still maintained. And in this era Pagaruyung Sultanateball gained prominence but they hate economical monopolies conducted by their neighbor, Aceh-icon.png Aceh Sultanateball, so they rebelled and asked VOC-icon.png Dutch East India Companyball help. This started European influence in the area.

In 19th century, several ulama who returned from Hajj in Hejaz-icon (irregular).png Meccaball started a movement which seeks to remove some adat which considered not Islamic. This led to a civil war called Padri War between adat and ulama in which Netherlands-icon.png Netherlandsball entered the conflict. Weakened by civil war, both adat and ulama easily crushed by Netherlands-icon.png Netherlandsball and their leader, Tuanku Imam Bonjol, exiled to North Sulawesi-icon.png Manadoball. After incorporated into Dutch East Indies-icon.png Dutch East Indiesball, the Dutch built many infrastructures, especially after coal discovery in Ombilin in 1876.
