Chapter Summary

Dolf Faidiban was once accused of being a member of the Organisasi Papua Merdeka (OPM, Free Papua Movement). The basic problem in positioning oneself as a public servant lay in knowing the people around Faidiban: were they primitive people, or people with education, farmers, fishers, teachers, health officers, doctors, government officials, controllers or HPBs, village chiefs, or poor people? The resulting understanding of how things were among humans, between the people, the administration and the environment, he applied psycho-sociologically in performing his administrative duties and services in the community. Faidiban explains the Dutch perspective and approach to Papuans based on his background. Then, he explains a bit about the time the districts in Netherlands New Guinea came to be established. He also gives one example of public administration during the United Nations Temporary Executive Authority (UNTEA) times.
