The Revival of Tradition in the Moluccas, Eastern Indonesia* Birgit Bräuchler Since the resignation of the authoritarian Suharto regime in May 1998 and the beginning of a vital democratisation process (reformasi), Indonesia has been shaken by massive outbursts of violence in various parts of the country (see, for example, Coppel, 2006; Klinken, 2007).
There had been reservations anyway, given that Ida Bagus Ladip, a practicing Brahmana priest, was a threat to Bali Aga claims to ritual autonomy—a kind of ritual class enemy. He was also a representative of the hated Suharto state, and it was widely assumed that he had used his support for the ritual revival plan purely as a strategic instrument to improve his popularity and thus maintain his hold on power after the political sea change of 1998, without any genuine spiritual sentiments to match.
The Islamic revival that swept Indonesia during the Reformasi period is part of this reform effort to cast aside undue and predatory foreign influence—on a cultural, but also on a political level— so as to create a more autonomous (or ‘ajeg’) Indonesia (Reuter 2010b). Indonesian nationalists and nationalist parties share these same sentiments, though they may strongly reject the hard edge of Islamic revival and generally have a different perception of what traditions should be revitalised. There is thus some competition over revitalisation at a level of content, but different movements share the basic aspiration to make the nation more autonomous (ibid).
