I was on a canoe towards Marisa, and the Wana that inhabit its jungles, when I saw the flying fish. I thought of dolphin escorts for cruise ships. Probably a scene in some Olsen twin movie. But here, it was around 10 am. The boys sat in the stern with the engine -lack there of muffler- muffling their claps. Slamming their palms together in front of their chests only made their hands tingle quietly, mutely, by comparison. Arlo carved a one-eyed, one-nosed, one smiling ogre into his pomelo and then tore the face away from itself, passing its pieces down the planks for each student and teacher to clinch their portion of the treat. (I tip my hat to you, oh great bug master.) We passed a nickel mine, soon to be exported ore for China’s engineering. A man on the shore suspended a brick above his head. My nose burnt. And my forearms, but only barely. My eyes were wet.

Guilt tunnels. It bypasses the small tin soldiers of our minds that say, pause. It plunges like water through a sewage system, twisting with pressure and unsnapping rusted doors. It asks questions. Urgent. Anxious. Pleading.

On this canoe, destination world map un-dotted, the assault bubble burst. And it tasted cloudy. I am having fun. Fun, with exclamation marks radiating from the syllable. And my eyes were wet. My month into Indonesia Spring, 2011. I felt the impact of a vacation – absent of responsibility and permanence. I have taken a semester away from college. Why did I end up here? Why am I allowed so much freedom? Why did I not use it more considerately? How am I part of this gift, to which I am not giving back?

Guilt breathes. If it is powerful enough, the exhale is visible. If the disparity resonates, then guilt is hope. Some friends here helped me see this. Guilt is what you build with it. This guilt is propelling, wanting of a cause. I was reminded that I am twenty. I hope to do great things with this guilt.

Dear Parents and Friends of Indonesia Spring Semester Students and Instructors,

Many of you may be concerned about the earthquake that occurred in Japan today, which triggered a tsunami warning for Japan and Russia. A tsunami watchbeen issued for eastern Indonesia and we are monitoring the situation very closely and communicating with different contacts on the ground throughout eastern Indonesia.

THIS NOTE IS TO CONFIRM THAT ALL OF THE SEMESTER STUDENTS AND INSTRUCTORS ARE SAFE AND NOT TRAVELING ON THE WATER TODAY. THEY ARE CURRENTLY IN A VERY PROTECTED AREA (MOROWALI FOREST RESERVE ) IN SOUTH CENTRAL SULAWESI.

It should be noted that there are major land masses which separate the group from the open body of water between Indonesia and Japan, namely, the long eastern arm of Sulawesi which extends out to Manado, the lower eastern arm which extends out to Luwuk, the Banggai Islands, and the big island of Halmahera.

The group is currently trekking through the interior of Morowali Forest Reserve at elevations significantly above sea level. If you are looking for the park on a map, the closest big town is Kolonodale, and the Reserve itself is nestled inland from Tomori Bay, another small protected body of water. I am also speaking with contacts in Kolonodale. The group is traveling with a satellite phone and can contact me and/or Boulder 24-hours a day. They do not have the phone on 24 hours a day (to conserve battery power) but do check for messages regularly. They have been informed about the tsunami watch but also know that they are in a very protected area. They have been instructed to not travel by water at this time before checking with me regarding further updates from authorities.

The waves are expected to arrive in Papua and Northern Maluku by 6 p.m. Jakarta time, at which point I will post another update here.

Our thoughts and condolences go out to the people in Japan who were affected by the earthquake.

Again, the group is safe and in a very protected part of south central Sulawesi.

More soon,

Jamie Woodall

Indonesia Program Director

Dear Friends and Family of the Indo Semester group,

I have just been on the phone with a colleague in Manado, on the tip of the Northern arm of Sulawesi. People who live on the northern coast, (which she does) have been advised to seek higher ground until 10 pm (35 more minutes from the time of writing).

She has informed me that a wave of about 45 centimeters (17 inches) of water did come in but that there is no longer a tsunami warning there in Manado, N. Sulawesi.

My contacts in Kolonodale, the small city on the shores of Tomori Bay, have seen absolutely no effects from the earthquake, including no water rising. As Morowali is inland, we can assume the same there.

I will continue to monitor the situation in other parts of eastern Indonesia but it appears that as the water has now "hit", the potential risk from this earthquake and subsequent tsunami wave has now passed.

More updates to come,

Jamie Woodall

As I write, the group is nestled safely under their mosquito nets in the Wana settlement in Morowali Nature Reserve...They are living amidst people who rarely, if ever, leave the forest. They are hunters and gatherers who understand the forest like we understand breathing - with a distinct effortlessness. It is second nature to the Wana, and every pattern and subtle nuance that occurs in the forest dictates their world. They understand how things grow, where to track certain birds, how to fish with spears, which plants can be used medicinally, how to carve paddles, which vines hold water, how to make the most of thin resources, and, despite great language and cultural barriers, how to welcome strangers into their community.

About 10 months ago, while still developing this program, I had the privilege of staying with the Wana and was deeply moved by their genuine kindness, hospitality and childlike curiosity...

As the group will be out of touch until the 13th of March, when they will return to Kolonodale before catching the Pelni liner down to Kendari, I thought you might enjoy a peek at the Wana and one of their settlements deep in the heart of the Morowali nature Reserve....

In the Tana Toraja region of Central Sulawesi, where our group spent ten days, the Torajan people maintain a distinctive culture, even as they have adopted Christianity, introduced by the Dutch a century ago, and as their children leave their traditional villages to work at better-paying jobs across Indonesia. The most obvious feature of Torajan culture, which since the 1970s has brought curious travelers to their region, are their elaborate funeral rituals, featuring the sacrifice of pigs and buffalo – the more important the deceased, and the more friends he or she had, the more animals are sacrificed.

During our time in Toraja, we learned a great deal about the Torajans’ unique funeral traditions, and about their beliefs about death and the afterlife. For instance, the sacrificed animals’ spirits serve as invisible steeds that carry the spirit of the deceased person safely on its journey to the second life – where, as Kiara noted in her Yak of the Week (bravo!), a person who was happy in her first life will continue to be happy, and an unhappy person will continue to be unhappy.

But as we learned more, what I found most interesting of all about the Torajan funerals was not what they said about death, but rather what they said about Torajan life. Torajan society is a thick web of relationships between close family, distant relatives, friends and neighbors. Attendees to a funeral (which often number in the thousands of people) bring gifts of palm wine, rice, pigs or buffalo depending on their means and the closeness of their relationship with the deceased. At the funeral of the mother and aunt of a woman we spoke to in Limbong village, eighty-four buffalo were sacrificed – the most expensive two of which were worth over five thousand dollars each. The sacrificed animals’ meat is then shared with relations, friends and neighbors, who smoke their buffalo meat over their family cooking fire to preserve it.

The point is that Torajan families invest a very significant part of their income (including from children working outside Toraja) in buffalo that are later sacrificed and shared with the community. There is a strong system of reciprocal giving and sharing of wealth. And each gift reinforces a relationship between the families of the giver and receiver. Families carefully keep track of the gifts that they (and even previous generations of their families) have received at past funerals; each gift represents a mutual connection, and a likelihood of giving back to that family in the future.

The Torajan people who shared their perspectives, culture and stories with us, have given us a gift as well: an illuminating glimpse into a culture in which one’s wealth is measured less by money and more in terms of one’s generosity and the quality of one’s relationships.

Every day, in fact, we’re being given gifts of new knowledge and insight daily by the people we meet and the experiences that Indonesia is offering us. What we will do with these gifts, and how they will change us, remains an open question.

Dear Parents, Family and Friends,


Today, our group is heading off on a six-day trek in Morowali NatureReserve in Central Sulawesi, where we will be traveling up river onfoot and by dugout canoe to visit the nomadic, forest-dwelling Wanapeople and study jungle ecology. In Morowali, we’ll be guided byrepresentatives of Friends of Morowali, an NGO dedicated to conservingthe natural environment and protecting the rights of the Wana peoplein Morowali.

It will be a rare opportunity to explore a pristineecosystem barely altered by human hands and meet one of the fewsurviving bands of hunter-gatherers left on the planet. Throughexploring the issues facing Morowali and its indigenous inhabitants,we’ll continue our inquiry into human/environment interactions, globaldevelopment issues and human rights. All members of our group arefeeling strong, healthy and excited for this adventure. This is justthe kind of thing that we came to Indonesia for! We will be out ofphone and internet contact until March 13. However, we will bechecking in with Jamie Woodall, our Program Director in Bali, at least everyother day via satellite phone.

I am looking at how people in different local villages engage in Indonesia’s market economy.

Fun fact that I have learned: Although chocolate is grown on Sulawesi, the chocolate factories are all in Java. The exportation back to Sulawesi is rather expensive, hence there is very little chocolate sold in Sulawesi.

Mom, Dad, Sister, Brother, Hannah, Eric – Love you!

My independent study is about the relationship between life and

death in Indonesia. Some of the questions I am asking are:

  • What religion are you?
  • Why do people get sick?
  • Where do you think you go when you die?
  • How do people stay healthy?
  • Are you afraid of death?
  • What do you value most in life?
