Indigenous People: Recognition and Self Determination

 

Background

Indonesia is a melting pot where over 300 ethnic groups are living in Indonesia. In fact, Indonesia is home to an estimated 50-70 million indigenous and tribal people. The Government of Indonesia supports the promotion and protection of indigenous people worldwide. However, the problems faced by indigeneous people in Indonesia are not settled yet. According to Indigenous People’s Alliance of the Archipelago (AMAN), an independent community organisation with a vision to create a just and prosperous life for all Indigenous Peoples in Indonesia, many indigenous people does not fully get their rights, especially to their traditional lands, territories and resources.

In many cases, indigenous people felt injustice because government and some companies took their lands called “Tanah Adat”, For decades, they have been locked in fierce battles with logging, palm oil and mining companies that have been expanding into their homelands in the resource-rich nation because, many do not have formal titles to the land their families have lived on for generations. Other issue, as a minority indigenous people felt the pressure of the changing world. They were forced to change. But, according to their life principles, what they need is not technology and modernity, but a peace. Some of them viewed technology just destroy the environment.

Concern towards issues faced by indigenous peoples, related to their rights in claiming the lands and self determation, is still considered as low. At this point, I want to pick up this story and publicize it in form of visual interactive website. Interactive website is the most suitable platform to deliver the story and information to audience.

 

Objectives

There are two main objectives of this project, which are:

  • Present the story news of indigeneous people of Indonesia to rise the awareness of public
  • Provide information in visual interactive site to create engagement and rich experience for the user

 

Recommendation

Publication about indigenous people in Indonesia can be found easily in the websites, blogs, and online news. Yet, the form of the information is less interactive. Thus, I plan to create visual interactive website. My reference is Visual Interaktif Kompas (VIK). VIK is able to pack and deliver the perspective of selected events creatively and interestingly.
