Description - The Orang Suku Laut of Riau, Indonesia by Cynthia Chou

When translated, the "Orang Suku Laut" means a "tribe of sea people". The Orang Suku Laut in Riau traverse an archipelago encompassing over 3200 islands, alongside many other races from Malays to the Javanese. They have been deemed a backward people by the Indonesian government and local Indonesians, and are seen as alien and dangerous. The Orang Suku Laut however see themselves as indigenous people. Plans mooted for developing the archipelago - the Growth Triangle - have raised questions about the implications of displacing local inhabitants. This book focuses upon the predicaments of the Orang Suku Laut in view of the challenges imposed upon them by the emergence of new borders created by the Growth Triangle zone on their maritime world.
