Manado and the Region of Minahasa

PandatariafilmManado and the Region of Minahasa

Project details

Manado is situated at the furthest end of the island of Sulawesi, in Indonesia. It is the most important city in the magnificent region called Minahasa, where a population, converted to Christianity by the Dutch in the 18th century has, in spite of this, been able to maintain its original identity. The people here still live on fishing and over the years have had very little contact with Western civilization. Mount Mahawu and Mount Lokon, a few kilometres away from Manado, are just two of the eleven active volcanoes in Sulawesi. These volcanoes represent one of the main links of the Indonesian population to spirituality; their lives are deeply influenced by these phenomena and because of them, they consider life as being extremely unstable. “What we have – they say – doesn’t really belong to us, because it can be taken away at any moment.” The volcanoes have not only had an impact on Indonesian sensitivity, but have also conditioned the fertility of this land, making it even more productive.
