Item Description

Caret Down Primary

Edition 3 of 5

26 Dec 2011 / Tangerang, Indonesia // In 1685, the Dutch built a fort (benteng) at the current town centre of Tangerang. Eventually, the Chinese who lived around the now-demolished fort started identifying themselves as Cina Benteng (Chinese of the Fort), says David Kwa, an observer of Chinese culture in Indonesia. Nowadays, the Chinese who live in the countryside of Tangerang are also labelled as such. But the term also has a derogatory connotation, often used by the urbanised Chinese to stereotype those who are poor, dark-skinned or kasar (rough). Ironically, the Cina Benteng are also taken by some urban Chinese to be the
