Chapter Summary

The author uses only wooden logs to pound the earth firm and smooth that he managed to clear the airfield in Moanemani, Wisselmeren. In 1960, through a government decree, author was transferred to Waropen-Atas, then known as the district of Boven-Waropen. He was the first Papuan appointed to serve as chairman of the Dewan Perwakilan Rakyat Daerah (DPRD, Regional Council of People?s Representatives) of Yapen-Waropen. A few major provisions were regulated under the New York Agreement. The first was that the handover of authority over Irian Jaya to the Republic of Indonesia would go through the international agency of the United Nations Temporary Executive Authority (UNTEA). Regarding autonomy for the region of Irian Jaya, the Indonesian government has taken a stand to increase the autonomy of Irian Jaya. Papua, with its existing potential, is the most highly productive region in Indonesia.
