This occurred since the state could not withstand the bright and promising beginning in the early twentieth century that mainly focused on self-appreciation. There was a subjugation of expressions both in local and regional on the issues of ethnicity that were successful to the notion of a united state of Indonesia, these issues contributed the development of the strange concept that revolved around “Indonesian race.”
From the article, the question of the Indonesian state and a putative nation arose because of a gradual development that was observed in the two decades of the twentieth century of what was considered an indigenous concept of “Indonesia."
