Transcript of South East Asia

SouthEåst Asiå § § By: Cåde Leßlånc ô ô Indonisia ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ Cùltùre: Indonesia has one of the most ethnically diverse populations in the world, with people from about 300 ethnic groups. The largest ethnic group is the Javanese, who live mostly on the island of Java and make up about 41 percent of Indonesia's population. Religon: More than 85 percent of the Indonesian people are Muslims, and about 10 percent are Christians. Many of Indonesia's Muslims follow Islam less strictly than other Muslims do. For example, many Indonesians combine ancestor and nature worship with Islam or Christianity. Fööd: The main food of Indonesians is rice, boiled or fried in various ways and served with a great variety of other foods. Indonesians eat their rice with meat, fish or a fish sauce, or vegetables; or they simply flavor it with hot spices. Indonesian cooks often simmer food in coconut milk and oil, and sometimes serve it wrapped in banana or coconut leaves. Fa§ion: The traditional clothing of Indonesian men and women is a colorful skirt called a sarong or a kain. A sarong is a long strip of cloth wrapped around the body. A kain is similar, but with the ends sewn together. Men wear a shirt with trousers, or a sarong. Women usually wear a long-sleeved blouse and a sarong or kain. Schòöl: The schools do not run on the Duey decimal system much like ours,
they concentrate on how well a student does in school to determine what job they will get. Most schools are not funded by the government. Teachers and faculty must pay out-of-pocket for suplies. Government: : _____________ ______________ . The Indonesian government is based on a set of beliefs known as Pancasila. Pancasila consists of five principles: belief in one God, humanitarianism, the unity of Indonesia, democracy based on deliberation and consensus among representatives, and social justice for all people. Sukarno, Indonesia's first president, set forth the principles of Pancasila in 1945 and made it an official state doctrine. Entertainment: The most famous arts of Indonesia include two types of traditional dancing: the dances of the old royal courts of Java and the dramatic folk dances of Bali. Both types of dancers wear elaborate costumes and heavy makeup or masks. Javanese dances consist of slow, elaborate motions in which even finger gestures have a meaning. The dances may represent scenes of adventure, battle, or love. Balinese dances have quicker rhythms and more forceful movements. Many Balinese dances have a religious meaning and are based on ancient Hindu stories. :$: Curen¢y :$: They are called "Rupiahs" 1 Rupiah to every 0.000111$ Exchange rate:
