A young inexperienced film maker, Dominic Brown entered the social sphere of evil propaganda, controlling what people would see in West Papua. A propaganda film was made “forgotten bird of paradise” in 2009 with the expressed aim of “spreading lies about West Papua and trying to create conflict in the peaceful land of Papua”.
His visit and his film shows that Papua IS NOT CLOSED TO FOREIGNERS, he and hundreds of foreign journalists have visited the place. Indonesian people in West Papua from hundreds different ethnic groups are very wise because the evil propaganda style by Dominic Brown has no impact whatsoever in instigating conflict among the tribes.
Dominic tries to demonize Indonesia, especially the military to attract worldwide attention. However, his cheap propaganda was so shallow, immoral and full of lies. So, it is normal if people will see his work as insignificant propaganda.

Indonesia plans to promote its natural and cultural attractions in order to reach its target of 7.6 million tourist arrivals in 2011, with an emphasis on “eco-cultural” sights and activities. These are expected to attract well-heeled visitors who spend more and have less of an impact on the environment.
In December, Esthy Reko Astuty, director of promotions at the Culture and Tourism Ministry, announced that Indonesia’s eco-cultural strategy for 2011 would see environmental issues such as climate change featured in promotional activities as well as a program launched to encourage more visits to museums.

The government should understand the root of the conflict in Papua first before adressed other problems.
One of the main duties of the president and vice president of Indonesia is to maintain the integrity of the Unitary Republic of Indonesia. In confronting this task, it should be noted that internal threats usually have a bigger impact than external ones. And sometimes, the threats from outside the country become even more visible when the country itself allows conflict to grow within its own borders. Read the rest of this entry »

In early April 2010, at the office of Indonesian Embassy-Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea, a family of Dusay consisting of six people had come with the intent to convey their desire to return to Jayapura. This case reminds us of the universal proverb that There is no Place but Home. In addition, this also indicates that Papuan people who live in the PNG are aware about the improvement of Papua and West Papua Provinces as part of the democracy process in the Republic of Indonesia.

Mummi not only exists in Egypt, but also in Papua province. Papuan mummi is made by evaporating its human body fluids so it becomes a dry, hard, and rigid body. In this process, it is not required ingredients or preservatives. Dani tribe’s mummi called “Hun” means spirit, that is believed to protect and bring a blessing for its future generations.Someone can be mummi if during his/her lifetime was very popular such as a head or warlord. Preservation remains to be done as a tribute to charismatic figure mummi.
Prosess of mummi can only be done by couple (a husband and a wife). Husband’s duty is to complete preservation, starting from preparing wood until heating a dead body, while wife’task is to prepare food for his husband. A man uses sharp wood to puncture dead body until all fluids out of the body.

In the Upper Baliem Valley, West Papua, the Dani tribe live a neolithic life and rumours of cannibalism are rife
Chris Haslam — The warriors come over the ridge like a tidal wave, a fast-moving wave of 12ft spears, bows and arrows, and wicked-looking stone axes.
Naked but for feathered headdresses, bamboo breastplates and penis gourds protruding like horns from their loins, they run through the crackling grass in silent menace. The sun flashes off brown skin smeared with pork fat and, at a range of 300 yards, the formation changes to what a Zulu would recognise as the horns of the buffalo.

(West Papua Free, 28 February 2009)
It is worth to read articles from the Independent, telegraph and dailymail about how people in UK perceive Papuans. Both sides, BBC broadcaster Michael Buerk and some people who disapprove with Buerk’s are right is some parts but mislead on the other parts. I will highlight some examples as follows:
- Buerk said that ‘If you say innate humanity, the only really primitive societies to survive into the modern age are tribes in the remote parts of New Guinea and whenever they come across a stranger they kill them.’ In my opinion, Buerk’s statement is wrong in most part of Indonesian West Papua and Papua New Guinea. However, he is right when he refers to the Free Papua Organization who love to kill for terrorizing any visitors. Read the rest of this entry »

(Free West Papua) A short note from Sidney 23 Feb 2009.
Australian government is going the wrong way about improving relations with Indonesia if it continues to ignore the Aborigines (Indigenous Australians) while talking about West Papua issue. The genocide of Aborigines is a bad history that Indonesia should avoid in West Papua.
If Australia really wants to improve the relationship with Indonesia, we should be actually talking and discussing the issues of Aborigines genocide and the human rights situation in West Papua simultaneously. By ignoring it, it’s only putting it on the backburner and one day will explode and probably destroy the good image of Australian people in the world.
