Papua Province is one of the richest provinces in Indonesia with an area of more than three times the size of the island of Java, plus a small population with rich and unexplored natural resources such as forest products, plantations, agriculture, mining fisheries.
This is due to the lack of an adequate road network that can connect the production centers to the Public Works Department to make good road infrastructure development.
When viewed from the characteristics of culture, livelihoods and patterns of life, indigenous Papuans can be divided into two major groups, namely Papua mountains or inland, highlands and lowland Papua and the coast. The traditional religious belief patterns of the Papuan people blend together and absorb into all aspects of life, they have an integral world view that is closely related to each other between the material and spiritual world, which is secular and sacred and both function together.
