Interfaith Endeavours for Peace in West Papua

by Fr. Neles Tebay

Published by Missio 2006

ISSN 1618 6222

Relations between the Indonesian government and the indigenous Papuans in West Papua have been marked by violent conflict since Indonesia took charge of the territory in 1963. In 2000, the leaders of all the religions, including Christianity, Islam, Hinduism and Buddhism, agreed on a joint initiative for peace. Their interfaith collaboration for peace, manifested in a variety of activities, has proved a source of

hope. The religious leaders are now united and committed to working together for peace under the motto ‘Papua, Land of Peace’. Their interfaith peace initiative requires support from all peace-loving people and institutions.

This study on Interfaith Endeavours for Peace in West Papua spells out the threats to peace in the territory, examines the values underlying the concept of ‘Papua, Land of Peace’, explains the interfaith commitment to peace, stresses the need for the involvement of all people in West Papua as well as consistent support from the Indonesian government, military and civil society, and describes how the international community can sustain the campaign for ‘Papua, Land of Peace’.

He Alo a He Alo: Face to Face: Hawaiian Voices on Sovereignty

Edited by Roger MacPherson Furrer

Published by the Hawaii Office of the American Friends Service Committee

ISBN 0-91002-25-1

Shipping is $3 in Canada, $7 in the USA and $12 International

Diverse but unified Native Hawaiian voices- artists, poets, composers, community activists and volunteers, educators, professors, social workers, students, attorneys, and public officials - explore the meaning of Hawaiian sovereignty from an indigenous perspective. The volume, as a call to action, clusters voices into sections "embracing our past," "uncovering the present," and "dreaming our futures"; it concludes with two appendices: a usefully condensed annotated chronology of Hawaiian history (circa 100 until 1991), and a highly selective, interpretive glossary that is particularly helpful in its inclusion of people (Kuhio), places (Kaho'olawe, Ko'Olina), legislation (such as the 1893 U.S. overthrow of the Constitutional government of Hawaii, the 1898 Annexation Act, and the 1972 Aboriginal Lands of Hawaiian Ancestry lobbying for reparations from the U.S.), and concepts central to an understanding of the issues pertinent to Hawaiian sovereignty, such as the Hawaiian Homes Lands, Office of Hawaiian Affairs, and Wards of State.

Cry of the Forgotten Land

Directed by Ian Mackenzie

26 minutes

1995

VHS

This video documents the plight of the forest-dwelling Moi people of West Papua. New Guinea, second largest island on earth, is home to over 100,000 species found nowhere else on earth, and to ancient human cultures, including the Moi people. The Moi's harmonious relationship to nature is threatened by the Indonesian government, whose recruited emigrants are chopping down their rainforest home.

Filmed at great personal risk, this video is a well-crafted study of the ancient Moi culture and its perils.

Pacific Women Speak Out For Independence and Denuclearisation

Edited by Zohl dé Ishtar

A joint publication of Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom (Aotearoa), the Disarmament and Security Centre (Aotearoa), and Pacific Connections (Australia). Raven Press: Christchurch

ISBN 0-473-05666-6

Indigenous women from Australia, Bougainville, East Timor, French Polynesia, Hawaii, West Papua, Marshall Islands, New Zealand and Palau have overcome incredible odds to tell their stories of survival in a joint publication. The editor, Zohl de Ishtar, says "This book is a contribution to the Hague Appeal for Peace, a global campaign to delegitimise war. It arises from our concern that indigenous Pacific women are rarely heard in the wider international arena and is an attempt to make their wisdom more available."

Review by Laura Lynch

These women share their powerful stories with honesty and clarity in an effort to do their part to ensure a safer world for future generations.
