As Abdon Nababan the director of the National Indigenous Peoples Alliance (AMAN) notes in the video, this discriminatory pattern of development, which denies peoples' rights, has to stop as it threatens not just the future of indigenous peoples but the unity of the country itself.

Alliance of Indigenous Peoples (AMAN) secretary - general Abdon Nababan on Thursday demanded the government involve indigenous people in spatial planning processes.

"A lot of customary land conflict occurrs in the country primarily because the government never lets indigenous people, especially who live in the forests, voice their aspirations in planning deliberations," Abdon told The Jakarta Post.
Though, in fact, their ancestors have lived in the forests for generations," Abdon explained.
"We conveyed the customary land map to the government every year," Abdon said.
Abdon said he had hoped the government would use their data as the basis for spatial planning processes.
"We did the project because regional administrations and regional legislative councils, which are the parties that create the spatial planning, use the central government's map as their basis in preparing the spatial planning. These are our good intentions, but it depends on them whether they use our data and finally involve indigenous people in the process," Abdon said.

"The existence of indigenous people in Indonesia is stipulated in several laws, including the 2003 Forestry Law, the 1960 Agrarian Law and the 2014 Village Law," AMAN secretary-general Abdon Nababan said in a discussion in Jakarta on Thursday.

"Every week, we received reports on the arrest of indigenous people and the determination of fugitive status," AMAN secretary-general Abdon Nababan said at a press conference on Wednesday.

Abdon said that indigenous people were often arrested for farming their own land because the government had issued forest utilization licenses for their land to companies. He said indigenous people had also been criminalized when they tried to farm land that was within an area that the government had declared a national park despite it originally being their customary land.
Unfortunately, Abdon said, the government did not do its best to reach out to indigenous people, which had at times led to separatist sentiment. "Indigenous people feel excluded. They feel disappointed and colonized by the state. Such disappointment is expressed by separatism movements, like that in Papua," Abdon said.

"Postponing the ratification of the bill means ignoring the mandate of the Constitution and letting 70 million indigenous people in the country continue to lose their rights with no legal protections," AMAN secretary-general Abdon Nababan said on Sunday.

If the House and the government kept ignoring the draft bill, he said, indigenous people would face more human rights abuse, not to mention the widespread destruction of forests. "All of which has had a negative impact on their lives," Abdon said.
According to Abdon, the crisis threatening the Anak Dalam tribe is an example of the problems characterizing indigenous communities in Indonesia.
He said that such a bill, therefore, was urgently needed to reduce criminalization against indigenous people and to reduce land conflicts caused by investment and the government's infrastructure projects.
"The bill could also highlight the role of indigenous people in global climate change adaptation and mitigation efforts," Abdon said.
