- maluku ethnic; indonesian identity
Being an Indonesian is a sociological endeavor to be constantly pursued. It takes a deliberate structural and cultural transformation that can keep a critical distance on sectarian issues manipulated to achieve a certain goal. Maluku is a part of the ethnic groups that helped with the birth of Indonesia, but in reality it is one of the poorest provinces in Indonesia. The research aims to examine the pattern of Maluku ethnic transformation in the concept of Indonesian nationalism and the fulfillment of Maluku ethnic’s citizenship rights as a manifestation of Indonesian national identity in national development policies. Finding research data by conducting interviews and observations and adopting a qualitative design, the research describes the reality of Maluku ethnic in the trajectory of history since it was committed to being a part of Indonesia until present. The research results are expected to be used as a basis for formulating policies and reconstructing the vision of nationalism to bring true social justice to all Indonesian people, including the people of Maluku. In conclusion, the government should open the widest possible access for the fulfillment of Maluku ethnic’s citizenship rights as a manifestation of Indonesia’s national identity.
