Maluku is blessed with incredible sea gardens, idyllic, tropical beaches and rugged, forest-coated volcanic mountains. These are the famous Spice Islands which drew Indian, Chinese, Arab and eventually European traders in search of cloves and nutmeg. In 1511, the Portuguese built their first fort in the area on the island of Ternate, and cornered the clove trade. The Dutch, who arrived in 1599, mounted the first serious threat to Portuguese control of Maluku’s treasures. Armed conflicts broke out and Western society as we know it today accumulated a great deal of wealth in these spice wars.
The Nusa Tenggara is a string of islands to the east of Bali, while Timor is its easternmost island in that string. Topographically, Timor differs from the rest of the East Nusa Tenggara islands. For the line of volcanoes that runs from Sumatra, Java, and on to other Nusa Tenggara islands, skips Timor and continues north to Maluku or the Moluccas. The cause of this is that unlike other Nusa Tenggara islands, Timor is in fact geologically related to Australia, and therefore has no volcanoes. While its geographical location and long history and tradition make it culturally Indonesian.
Papua is the common name that refers to the western half of the Island of New Guinea (Indonesian New Guinea). The Papua region has been visited by global traders since the beginning of the 7th century.Another interesting aspect of Papua’s tribal and cultural history is mummies. Usually just the tribal leaders or war commanders are preserved with traditional ingredients in order to glorify their historical or religious importance. There are 24 tribes with different languages spoken daily in Papua and frequently connected with the Asmat and Dani ethnic groups. A popular product of the Asmat tribe is wooden sculpture, internationally known for its beauty.
