Abstract

This study aims to: identify Papuan ethnonationalism values that can strengthen the spirit of Indonesian nationalism in Papua; describe the process of Papuan ethnonationalism transformation into Indonesian nationalism to strengthen the spirit of Indonesian nationalism in Papua. This study uses qualitative methods with historical approaches. Qualitative research is a research process to understand humanitarian and social problems by creating a comprehensive and complex picture that is presented in words, reporting detailed views obtained from information sources and carried out in a scientific setting. Ethnonationalism is nationalism in the form of solidarity groups or a sense of community based on ethnicity, referring to subjective feelings that separate one particular group from other groups. Because it is in the form of a solidarity group, ethnonationalism is a bond that is so strong and will be difficult to release by a society, which lives in a pluralistic nation's essence. Ethnonationalism is part of nationalism; therefore discussing the issue of ethno-nationalism will not be separated from the concept of nationalism, which is a matter that questions the nation or nationality. In connection with this, then in discussing ethno-nationalism in Papua, researchers used theories and concepts from nationalism experts, such as Smith, Kohn, Anderson, Renan, and Kahin.
