The Sierran East Indies were the overseas territories of the Kingdom of Sierra in Asia from 1898 to 1902. They were divided into Tondo (initially a self-governing territory, then later a protectorate and associated state), and the crown colonies of Palawan and Cuyo, and Zamboanga. Sierran rule began with the acquisition of the remaining Spanish colonies in the East following the Spanish–Sierran War; which ended the faltering Spanish Empire, and established Sierra as a naval power in the Western Pacific. Palawan and Zamboanga (as well as the nearby Sulu Archipelago) were under Tondolese occupation following the Tondolese Revolution. Not wanting to relinquish their claim to the area, and under the belief that Tondo was too weak to resist foreign encroachment, Sierra decided to colonize the region – ending with the 1913 defeat of the Moro Rebellion.
