Jakata (also Jakatakan - see section below) was a city on the southwestern coast of Malaz Island which was known for its seafaring people, notably pirates. Jakata was referred to as Jakatan as well, but the name (in that form) was used only once in the Malazan main series by Steven Erikson (in "The Crippled God"), but it was used several times in Ian C. Esslemont's "Night of Knives". (wiki)
