Di Bawah Naungan Sang Kejora:"Nasionalisme" Papua Anti Indonesia?

I Ngurah Suryawan


This paper discusses the thought and imagination that exist among some
Papuans about what they call "Papuan nationalism". One of the symbols of
"nationalism" is the “Bintang Kejora Flag”. Papuan People construct their
own social history which is always at odds with the effort to make the
Papuans becomes Indonesian . The history of violence, suffering and
discrimination of development in Papua had been planted into the soul of
papuan people and that make different feelings such as “anti Indonesia”.
This paper argues that the efforts of social movements for recognition of
history and identity of the Papuan people has become very important. One of
the effort that could be done is to bring the history back which is "darkened"
on Papua through the motions of writing papuans own history among the
Papuans themselves.

Keywords : nationalism, history, violence, social movements, identity
