Describe the Sami
Surontiko Samin of Randublatung village, a teak forest village started questioning the state ownership of forest. They argued that wind, water, earth and wood was not created by the state so the forests could not be owned by them. Because of this Saminist movement in Indonesia started. Samin’s sons-in-law helped to organise this movement. 3,000 families were following his idea by 1907. When the Dutch came to survey the land, they lied down on their land to show their opposition. Other people refused to pay taxes, fines and to perform labour.
