About Papua

Western Papua occupies the western half of New Guinea. This island is located immediately south of the equator, and is the world's second largest island, following Greenland. Western Papua provides a panoply of Old World tropical species. This is due to the land bridge linking Australia and New Guinea during the last ice age. Western Papua's climate is primarily a function of topography. The low-lying north and south sides of the island possess great tropical jungles, while the mountain ranges exhibit temperate conditions. The mountains run east to west and rise to 16,023 ft. (4,884m) at Carstensz Pyramid.

Politically, Western Papua is the easternmost province of Indonesia. The area was initially claimed by the Dutch in the mid-1800s as part of their Spice Island empire, but by 1940 they had still not explored further inland than the coastal plains. The Dutch wanted to prepare Irian Jaya for self-government by 1970, but from the late 1950s, Indonesia was exerting pressure to annex the area and, with help from the United Nations, this was accomplished in 1963.

This process was not universally accepted by native Papuans and discontent still prevails in certain areas. In 1961, the Harvard Peabody Museum sponsored a major expedition to the Grand A Valley to document the Dani's Stone Age culture (see Peter Matthiessen's Under the Mountain Wall). Wamena, the site of the valley's airstrip, has grown into a small town, but in general, the only big changes since then are that tribal fighting and cannibalism have ended. The province was in 1973 re-named Irian Jaya, "Victorious Irian." The indigenous movement has since identified themselves as West Papuan.

Beyond the Grand Valley of the Baliem River many other groups live in smaller valleys. These people were not contacted by the West until the 1960s and 1970s, when missionaries began penetrating these regions. In the highlands to the east of the Baliem River, the Yali, Mek, and Kim-Yal people comprise some of the other large tribal groups.

The natural beauty of Papua and Indonesia are the creation of God Almighty. With a sincere heart and sincere we try to introduce the most beautiful paradise on Earth is to the nations and will be used entirely for the welfare and prosperity of the people of Papua.
