Peranakan: an Indonesian Chinese
Peranakan is a term used for the descendants of the very early Chinese immigrants to the Southeast Asia region (in Indonesia and Malaysia today or known as Nusantara) who have partially adopted indigenous (e.g. Malay, Javanese, Manadonese, etc.) customs as part of an acculturation and/or intermarriage processes with indigenous communities. Many peranakan Chinese families have been settled in Indonesia for centuries and have indigenous as well as Chinese ancestry. That is why the word peranakan is commonly used to categorize Chinese Indonesians. In both Malay and Bahasa Indonesia, ‘peranakan’ means ‘descendants’ . The Peranakan Chinese number around 7 million among the total 230 million Indonesians.
This event exhibits 32 Photo Frames of Peranakan Culture and ethnography objects that related to history, fashion, culinary, daily life, architecture, and spiritual life.
