The Baduy: Guardians of the Sacred Forest by Irfan Kortschak

Contributor: Irfan Kortschak| Jakarta | Feb 2010

The Baduy: The First People

“The mountains may not be destroyed, the valleys may not be damaged,

What is long may not be cut short, what is short may not be lengthened,

We must remain faithful to the ways of our ancestors.” – Traditional Baduy verse

For tourists, journalists, and anthropologists alike, the very idea of a people who live deep in the forest, excluding all outsiders, has a powerful fascination.

I thought I had enough money to spend for the taxi and airport tax. And most probably I would still have enough left to enjoy a delicious indo mochacino in the airport. Though… I didn’t see near future coming. I waited at the counter to receive the stamp on my passport and the officer looked a bit dubious at me, followed by a: “Mister, you overstayed.” Shrruugg. No, can’t be, I counted the days, I thought I stayed exactly 60 days. “Mister, the computer don’t lie”. After going through all days one by one together I forfeited. He was right, that computer..and that officer. I stayed 62 days instead of 60. Big Oops! Continue reading
