Southwest Papua (Indonesian: Papua Barat Daya) is a province of Indonesia, and is a fraction of Western New Guinea. Despite being named southwest, it is a misnomer and this province is actually located in the northwest edge of Papua. The area that belongs to this province includes the Greater Sorong area (Indonesian: Sorong Raya) which consists of Sorong City, Sorong Regency, South Sorong Regency, Maybrat Regency, Tambrauw Regency, and Raja Ampat Regency. The Draft Law (RUU) on the Establishment of the Southwest Papua Province has been passed into law and becomes the 38th province in Indonesia.
Southwest Papua is located at the northwestern tip of an area called the Doberai Peninsula or the Bird's Head Peninsula. The westernmost tip of this province is the Raja Ampat Regency Regional Marine Protected Area whose beauty is worldwide and has a high diversity of marine life such as coral reefs, giant turtles, manta rays to whale sharks so that it is called a diver's paradise. Raja Ampat Islands consists of various islands such as Batanta, Misool, Salawati, and Waigeo. The capital of Southwest Papua is Sorong which is known as an oil and gas producer and an entry hub to Papua with complete port and airport facilities which makes it one of the most developed cities in Papua. In this province there are many ecosystems such as tropical rainforests and mountains that are still preserved. Tambrauw Regency which is a well known birdwatching destination, declared its area as a Conservation District to increase ecotourism.
Sultanate of Tidore period
The Raja Ampat Islands in Southwest Papua is a territory known since ancient times for having its own traditional government. These areas are traditionally governed by indigenous kingship led by a Fun and was further influenced by the Sultanate of Bacan and the Sultanate of Tidore with the taking of moluccan title Kolano as part of the expansion the territory of the sultanate under Gurabesi with the appointment of four kings called Kalano Muraha or Korano Ngaruha or Raja Ampat in Indonesian or Malay. The four kings were appointed according to the four islands scattered from the group of islands with their respective territories. Fun Gering became king in Waigeo, Fun Malaban became king in Salawati, Fun Mastarai becomes king of Waigama, and Fun Malanso becomes king of Lilinta (Misool).
The Tidore Sultanate became Dutch protectorate in the 17th century. During the Dutch East Indies era, Papua was considered to have little economic value compared to other islands, so it was left to Tidore Sultanate to govern and tax. However by late 19th century, the Dutch Government realized that colonization of Papua could prevent other Europeans from approaching other islands in the Dutch East Indies which disrupted trade monopoly especially spices in the Maluku Islands hence began to govern more directly. Until the end of the 19th century the main commodities in Papua were slaves and bird of paradise feathers. At the beginning of the 20th century, Europeans began to find signs of mineral potential in Papua. In 1935, Nederlandsch Nieuw Guinee Petroleum Maatschappij (NNGPM) established to conduct oil and gas exploration. Finally, oil was found in various places, for example in Klamono and the Sele Strait (the strait between Papua Island and Salawati Island), both are in the Sorong Regency area.
At the beginning of the 20th century, the Dutch divided New Guinea into several parts of afdeeling. One of which is Afdeeling Noord Nieuw Guinea (North New Guinea) based in Manokwari. Afdeeling is divided into several onderafdeeling, One of which is Sorong onderafdeeling centered on Doom Island. The Dutch then built offices, churches and settlements and arranged cities on this island so that it became a trading center and port. Residents who lived at that time told how Doom Island was brightly lit at night even though Sorong was still pitch black.
Papua fell into Japanese hands in 1942. This area became one of the battle locations in World War II. The allied troops under General Douglas MacArthur implemented the island hopping strategy by breaking the Japanese logistics chain. The allied troops one by one controlled the north coast of Papua starting from Jayapura, Biak, and the next islands to the last in Sausapor which is in Tambrauw Regency. The Allies sent spies to find a suitable place to land and then Sausapor beach was chosen. The weakly defended Sausapor was captured by the allied forces in Operation Globetrotter July–August 1944. An airstrip was then built at Sausapor so that it became the allied base for attacking the Moluccas and the Philippines. Japanese troops in Manokwari and Sorong who were cut off from other units fled to the forest and hid until the war was over. The Sausapor operation marked Papua's independence from Japan. Sausapor now there are many remnants of the war.
This region become the site of many confrontations during Operation Trikora due to its proximity to Indonesian territory in Maluku Islands. The first incursion into the Raja Ampat islands was an attempt by PG 200 on 14 September 1961 with 39 men under Lieutenant Jamaluddin Nasution. Unfortunately Lieutenant Nasution and two Papuans, Gerson Esuru (from Warwasi Village, Arguni) and Wos Rumaserang (both from the Gerakan Pelarian Pemuda) died in this attempt. This was then followed by PG 300, with command company 191261 under lt. Nana managed to infiltrate Gag Island, with 29 local islander joining the company. While command company 191260 under Serma Boy Thomas managed to reach Cape Dalpele in Waigeo Island after hiding in Bala-Bala Island. These efforts were followed by other infiltration of PG 400 (survivor of KRI Macan Tutul) led by Charles Papilaya and PG 500 (former Permesta rebel) led by Jonkey Robert Kumontoy and managed to join with Herlina Kasim and also PG 200 who had arrived earlier. The island of Waigeo was a safe haven for Indonesian troops as Dutch forces rarely patrol the region. While in Sorong, Simon Randa, a Torajan, with the Moi tribes supplied Indonesian guerilla forces called enso-enso lit. 'red-white' in Moi language.
The dispute ended with the signing of New York Agreement and Western New Guinea was under UNTEA until 1963 where it was ceded to Indonesia. In 1969, a controversial plebiscite locally called Penentuan Pendapat Rakyat or PEPERA lit. 'Determination of the People's Opinion' was held where West Irian formally became Indonesian territory. In 1969, the Government began to draw up administrative divisions in this area. The former Sorong onderafdeeling was changed to Sorong Regency, which has an area similar to the Southwest Papua Province present day. The island of Doom, which has limited land, was abandoned, while the city of Sorong, on the mainland of Papua Island, has gradually become more crowded and densely populated because of its strategic location. Doom Island is now the capital of the Sorong Islands district, with some of old buildings were restored to become government offices or left abandoned. The population in Sorong has also increased with the opening of the transmigration program by the government. Because Sorong rapid growth, the local government proposed an increase in the status of Sorong to become an Administrative City which was approved by the Ministry of Home Affairs in 1996.
On 4 October 1999, Sorong City was formalized by law and separated from Sorong Regency. The existence of regional autonomy has caused rapid expansion in the number of regencies and districts. Sorong Regency has become smaller in size due to this regional division. On 11 December 2002 South Sorong Regency and Raja Ampat Regency were created from parts of Sorong Regency, then in 2008 Tambrauw Regency (on 29 October) and Maybrat Regency (on 19 December) were created from other parts of Sorong Regency. The support for the creation of a new province was due to dispute on the location of West Papua's provincial capital between Sorong and Manokwari. Manokwari faction argues that Manokwari is a mnukwar (old village), because it was the location of the original Dutch residents. After the decision to pick Manokwari, the late John Piet Wanane, the Regent of Sorong, began to coordinate efforts to create a new province for the entire former Sorong Regency or called Sorong Raya, which is based according to the ethnic groups that exist in the region. What was then the whole of the former Sorong Regency was later formalized in law to become Southwest Papua Province in 2022 after 20 years of advocacy.
Expansion in this area was marred by many controversies. In Maybrat District, there was a debate over the location of the district capital, between Kumurkek and Ayamaru. Kumurkek is supported by the people of Aifat while Ayamaru is supported by the people of Ayamaru and Aitinyo. This struggle for the capital took place until the Constitutional Court decided that the capital was in Ayamaru in 2013. Community divisions still occur, so that a meeting was held between the communities and it was finally agreed that the capital would be in Kumurkek in 2019. After the transfer of the capital, the Ayamaru people plan to separate themselves by forming the Maybrat Sau Regency. Another controversy is the district loan problem that occurred in Tambrauw Regency. After it was formed, Tambrauw Regency, which was split from Sorong, "borrowed" 4 districts belonging to Manokwari Regency based on political agreement with the purpose of local election. The Constitutional Court rejected the appeal and confirmed the move of the now 11 districts in 2013 which led to protests from the community. The people of Kebar, Amberbaken, Mubrani, and Senopi who felt they had been forcibly moved to Tambrauw demanded to be declared a new West Manokwari Regency. With the division of Southwest Papua, the community requested that West Manokwari be removed from this new province because it tends to be closer in distance and custom to Manokwari than Sorong and is the customary territory of the Arfak tribe. However, this did not materialize until the new province was formed and should be addressed in a separate law regarding Tambrauw and Manokwari.
Southwest Papua was passed into law on 17 November 2022 by the DPR and inaugurated on 9 December 2022 by the Ministry of Home Affairs. On the day of the inauguration, Muhammad Musa'ad was also appointed as acting governor.
