n.d.  The Other Maluku: Chronologies of Conflict in Maluku Utara. For submission to Indonesia.

Abstract: The conflict in Ambon and Maluku has received a large amount of media and academic attention. In contrast, the violence in North Maluku (August 1999 - June 2000) has received less coverage and then only at its most violent points. It has largely been ignored by the academic community.  This seeming lack of interest despite the fact that the killing of Muslims in Tobelo has often been cited as the "spark" that lead to the call for a Jihad in the region and the subsequent arrival of the Laskar Jihad. This paper, based on eighteen months of fieldwork in Muslim and Christian communities in North Maluku and among North Moluccan IDPs in North Sulawesi, looks at the course of the violence as seen through local accounts. It reviews chronologies of the conflict and incorporates, often contradictory, accounts from all sides. More importantly, it examines how these events, and associated rumors, were interpreted and utilized on teh ground by local leaders and local communities to influence the course of the violence.

     ms. Reconciliation and Reinvention: The Resurgence of Tradition in Tobelo.

 

Abstract: The recent spate of communal violence in various parts of Indonesia has contributed to a resurgence of interest in customary tradition (adat). This paper will look at the revival of adat in the eastern Indonesian Providence of North Maluku that was engulfed by communal violence between Christian an Muslim communities in 1999-2000. The inability of government institutions to prevent the outbreak of violence has led people to search for alternative forms of conflict resolution, and in the post-conflict period, many people, particularly the elite, have turned to previously marginalized adat as a source fro reconciliation. It has come to be seen as a zone of interaction free of religious bias. This process has been taking place throughout the province; from the revival of once moribund sultanates to renewed interest in local languages. In particular, I look at the resurgence of adat among the the Tobelo people where the local elite hope that by focusing on tradition, rather than religion, they can overcome some of the tensions that contributed to the outbreak of violence, as well as prevent it from happening again. This paper looks at some of the efforts being made to reinvent and refashion Tobelo tradition, including the addition of Tobelo language courses to the school curriculum, the "rivival" of pre-Christian/pre-Islamic dance forms, and an increasing interest in older forms of land tenure. (submitted as an abstract to the 2003 American Anthropological Association and also to be presented as at Cornell Brown Bag seminar, 2 October 2003.)

 

    ms. An article on changing interpretation of Sasi in Halmahera.

 

Abstract: An article looking at local controversies over the practice of sasi in Halmahera. Sasi is a form of common property regulation in central Maluku that has been a frequent topic of academic research. Although not previously present in Halmahera, the local church has tried to import a revised version of sasi into Halmahera. However, in the Halmahera case, it is not about regulating common property, but about preventing the theft of crops. It has been introduced by a number of ministers with Ambonese backgrounds. There have been mixed reactions to the practice, such that it has become a frequent topic of debated at church councils (leading to the commissioning of a master thesis on the topic) and within some local communities. There are a range of controversies surrounding the implementation of sasi, including from accusations of blasphemy, and attempts by the church to increase its coffers (as people involved must pay for the use of sasi with ten percent of their harvest). This article will look at this controversy, local uses of sasi in North Halmahera, as well as other local beliefs dealing with the protection of crops (i.e. matakau, o bugi-bugo, etc.)

 

Future Planned Projects Based on RAI Fellowship Research:

 

    - An article about the effect of communal violence on family planning in Halmahera.

 

    - An article about cannibalism and local explanations during the 1999-2000 violence.

 

    - Book plans: The goal is to eventually publish a book length monograph on the violence and displacement in North Maluku.
