Elizabeth D. INANDIAK : Discovering Bebekan, the Village of Ducks

Elisabeth INANDIAK PRASETYO gives an overview of Bebekan and explains that it is located on a hill amidst a large plain of rice patties and has a cemetery at its center. This village, although located fifteen kilometers from the sea, was still affected by the Tsunami: thousands of people poured in from coastal regions to take refuge on the hill within the cemetery. She specifies that these people spent one night surrounded by death. Elisabeth INANDIAK PRASETYO talks about her discovery of a village made up of “pariahs,” and stresses that this qualification is related to their place of dwelling in a cemetery. She points out that while the village of BEBEKAN conveys the image of a paradise, it is really a disaster waiting to happen.
