In the 19th century there was an influx of large numbers of Chinese immigrant workers to the Dutch East Indies to work in mines and plantations. The largest group of Chinese immigrants began between 1860 and about 1890, they were composed of several very different ethnic groups and had cultures and customs and even the language was difficult to understand by each tribe, that of the Hokkian tribe, the Teo-Chiu tribe , Hakka (Kheh), Santung or Cantonese. This caused the Dutch colonials to issue a policy regulating the existence of ethnic Chinese in the Dutch East Indies by making segregation with the Java community. This segregation became very strong until Indonesian Independence. During the Reformation President Abdurrahman Wahid issued a policy to allow Chinese to express in the cultural field. Barongsai is one form of expression. The result is capable of lion dance as a Harmony Adhesive Multiculturalism. This study uses a short methodology of history to assess the effectiveness of lion dance.
