A bilateral relationship had existed between Malaysia and Indonesia ever since the Malacca Sultanate. The presence of the Javanese in Malacca was recorded in history in the 15th century. Whereas, the Bugis and Minangkabaus in Johor and Selangor, and the Mandailing were documented in the later centuries playing various roles in various aspects. The purpose of this study is to discuss the presence of the Mandailing and Minangkabau community in Kuala Lumpur during the 19th century. The discussion revolves around the history of their migration to Kuala Lumpur. This study will also observe the significant role they played in the economic aspects in Kuala Lumpur. Focus is given to the 19th century as the British Colonial policy at that time was to encourage and welcome the Mandailing and Minangkabau community to Malaya to assist in the growth of the tin mining industry especially in Kuala Lumpur. This study also looks at the roles in the aspect of business, agriculture and subsistence economy practiced by the Mandailing and Minangkabau community. Keywords: Mandailing community, Minangkabau community, Kuala Lumpur, economy, tin mining
