Sulawesi: Beaches, Mountains & Traditions

Sulawesi: Beaches, Mountains & Traditions | SULAWESI | Scoop.it

Sulawesi is a major gateway to East Indonesia, and one of the country's most diverse and interesting islands in its own right. Two the main cities here, historic Makassar in the South and modern Manado up North, both receive international flights and offer all the facilities you might wish for. But Sulawesi's real attractions are further afield: the island's unique shape, with four long, mountainous peninsulas stretching out from a central core, means that overland travel here can be time-consuming and even downright difficult, which keeps most visitors on a well-beaten path..

Ethnic groups of Southeast Sulawesi

The province of Southeast Sulawesi is inhabited by roughly 1,8 Mio people, meaning that the population density is very low: in 1994 it was around 58 people per square kilometer, about a quarter of the population density in Germany. Population growth is around 3,2% annually, also indicated by a large number of children, that one will encounter everywhere waving and screaming "Hello Mister". As a result, the social structure (average age) is a lot younger as compared to western industrialized countries.

Besides the Bugis and the immigrants from Bali and Java, that came in during the last years, 5 major ethnic groups live in this part of the island:

Tolaki, Morunene, Butonese, Munanese (locally called 'Wuna') and Bajau.

Indonesian Religions

The history of Indonesia is a succession of invading cultures - Indian, Chinese, Cambodian, Melanesian/Polynesian, Portuguese, Arabian, English, Dutch - that has resulted in a rich and complex civilisation in which the main religions of the world - Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam, Christianity - have been grafted on to the traditional religions of Indonesia. In this interweaving of religions there have been fascinating local variations and this is a dynamic process that is continuing today..

Buginese, language of the Bugis people of Sulawesi

The Buginese script is a syllabic alphabet used to write the Buginese language as spoke on the island of Sulawesi (or Celebes) in central Indonesia. It is likely to have derived from the ancient Kawi of Java, and ultimately from the ancient Brahmi script of India. It is also named lontara', which means "palm leaves", indicating the most common medium of Buginese writing. And by extension, lontara' also came to mean a form of literature recording Buginese histories and geneologies..
