Summary This is the first time that indigenous Papuan administrators share with an international public their experiences in governing their country. Having been in active service until their retirement in the early 1990s their oral histories allow for a complete recounting of political and administrative transformations under the Indonesian governance of Irian Jaya/Papua.
