Each individual has an identity. Identity is a differing character from individual characteristics or group characteristics of which the divergent element is very meaningful for them. Indonesia is known as a plural country with various ethnicities. Beside the diverse ethnicity composition, Indonesia also has ethnic Chinese who are largely perceived as ‘immigrant’ since the Dutch colonial era. For generations the Chinese has been living with a lot of issues, particularly its relations with the Indonesian society in general. These Chinese descendants have suffered from identity crisis due to the rejection to become part of the larger Indonesian community, despite the effort to assimilate them. Although identity as an individual is attached, environment and nationhood character contribute significantly to its development. Against this background, this study analyses the cultural orientation of Chinese Indonesians to understand the dynamics of their identity development.
