The Impact of Colonisation on Indigenous people in Indonesia

In 1780 the British forced out the Dutch and pursued their goal on taking over the spice companies and industries. A short time later the British handed the land back to the Dutch empire. The Dutch showed more sympathy towards the Indonesians as time passed, and the natives were granted personal rights.

Currently, Indonesia is an independent nation, and have been for some time. The Indonesians regained their culture and control over their land. The Indonesian people now own major industries revolving around natural resources such as rice and fresh fruit. Although, there is some poverty in Indonesia, it has gotten better. Not many countries have tried taking over the land of Indonesia since the 1900s.
