- Minahasa Raad; the Dutch Colonial Period
At the end of the 19th century; the Dutch Government realized that optimistic expectations from the early emergence of the liberal period had not yet been fulfilled. This was especially seen in the Javanese population who experienced a decline in welfare (mindere welvaart); which was acknowledged by Ratu Wilhelmina; by announcing an investigation into welfare in Java; while officially endorsing Ethical Politics. The presence of political parties and the participation of several people from Minahasa from the first youth congress in 1926 to the second youth congress along with several other national figures from Minahasa; who were involved in the youth oath pledge on October 28; 1928; increasingly showed awareness as a nation between Minahasa people with other tribes. The nationalist movement that grew up in the Minahasa in the 1930s; was certainly closely related to nationalist movements; especially since the establishment of the Indonesian National Party (PNI) and the introduction of the PNI in Manado in 1928; as a result of the growth of political parties - political parties which had already been born in Java and other regions in the Dutch East Indies. Still in the same era; the Celebes Institute was established in Surabaya; as an advisory body for Miinahasa people and for socio-political alliances throughout Sulawesi; which incidentally was influenced by the views of figures such as Sam Ratulangi and Pantouw. The Minahasa Raad was the first representative body established in the whole of the Dutch East Indies; with the formation of this council; the government had begun as a good start giving up the right to self-determination to the people of Minahasa.
