On the study of eastern central Sulawesi, Indonesia, this chapter contrasts the perspectives of two histories, one written from the viewpoint of the metropolitan center of Java and the other from the viewpoint of a pagan upland group in the hinterlands. The latter is an oral history collected from Wana farmers; the former was collected by Indonesian-government-sponsored historians by means of interviews with the regional political elite. Both histories focus on events that occurred in the wake of the Japanese invasion of central Sulawesi. The first concerns a millenarian movement, and the government history concerns the struggles of national liberation that shaped the transition from the Dutch colonial regime to the independent nation of the Republic of Indonesia.

Keywords:   Sulawesi, Indonesia, metropolitan center, Wana farmers, Japanese invasion, Dutch colonial regime, government history, oral history
