    Indonesia Overview

    Definition:

    Indonesia is a country of astounding cultural diversity, nowhere more evident than in the stunning variety of musical and related performing arts found throughout its several thousand populated islands. Known formerly as the Dutch East Indies, Indonesia is one of many modern nations whose boundaries were formed during the centuries of European colonial domination, placing peoples with contrasting languages, arts, systems of belief, and conceptions of the world under a single rule. The adoption of a national language in the early twentieth century was a crucial step in building the unity necessary to win a revolution against the Dutch (1945–1949). Today, a pan-Indonesian popular culture has been contributing to an increased sense of national unity, particularly among the younger generation. Nevertheless, strife between ethnic groups and decentralization of political rule after more than three decades of authoritarian rule has challenged this sense of unity. Indeed, though we can identify some general cultural traits, including musical ones, shared by many peoples of Indonesia, to speak of an “Indonesian” culture or style of music is problematic. Regional diversity is still very much in evidence. Most Indonesians’ first language is not the national language (Indonesian) but one of the more than two hundred separate languages found throughout this vast archipelago, comprised of an estimated 6,000 inhabited islands. Further, although many are familiar with the sounds of Indonesian pop music and with such Western stars as Rihanna, Taylor Swift, and One Direction, they also know their own regional musical traditions. In Indonesia, many kinds of music exist side by side in a complex pluralism that reflects both the diversity of the native population and the receptiveness of that population to centuries of outside influences. Indonesia is, then, a country truly home to worlds of music.

    "Native Americans" Refers to...

    Definition:

    The people known as “Native Americans”—also sometimes called American Indians or, in Canada, First Nations peoples—represent hundreds of different tribal groups and communities across North America. There are over five hundred different federally recognized tribes in the United States alone, with over six hundred more in Canada. While these communities are understood by both federal governments and by each other to be distinct cultural and political entities, they may also be usefully understood as a large and very diverse “ethnic” or minority community, although one that is quite unique and particular. Many long-standing treaties between the federal governments of Canada and the United States and numerous Native communities guarantee special rights and privileges and, in certain cases, a degree of political and cultural sovereignty to Native peoples. In Canada, this unique status is further affirmed in the 1982 Canadian Constitution, which recognizes that the indigenous peoples of Canada (which include not only the First Nations but also Inuit and Métis peoples) are guaranteed not only treaty rights but also “Aboriginal rights” (although the nature of these rights continue to be developed and negotiated). This ongoing concern with political and cultural sovereignty is, in large part, driven by a desire on the part of Native Americans to be able to live their lives as Native Americans, which includes the ability to speak not only English but also their own indigenous language, the pleasure of learning about their own unique tribal histories in their schools, and, of particular concern for us in this chapter, the freedom to continue, revive, and elaborate upon the cultural and religious traditions of their ancestors. This, of course, includes a great many music and dance practices that have, throughout the past five hundred years, been subject to myriad forms of government suppression and interference (Ellis 2001).
