LumiNation 2020 - Orang Phebien Webisode #3: Today’s Baweanese
The Baweanese presence in Singapore has been recorded as early as 1837, and their migration into Singapore intensified at the turn 20th century. Bawean migration is often said to be motivated by an indigenous ethos referred to as merantau. This video series will give insights to the factors influencing the migration of the Baweanese to Singapore and their integration with the various local communities to form one of the significant sub-ethnic Malay communities in Singapore today.
For the current generation of Singaporeans with Baweanese heritage, what does it mean to them to be ‘Baweanese’? From topics on pride to stereotypes, this final webisode features the thoughts, reflections and voices of today’s Baweanese generation in Singapore on their tight-knitted community.
This webisode will be available on this page from 22 Aug, Sat, 9am and available throughout the event.
