Timor is an island at the southern end of Maritime Southeast Asia, north of the Timor Sea. It is divided between the independent state of East Timor, and West Timor, belonging to the Indonesian province of East Nusa Tenggara.
To the Head of the Crocodile – In ancient stories, the island of Timor is said to have been the body of a crocodile swimming through the waters of an ocean that existed before the sky and the earth separated. At the head of this crocodile, in the extreme east, is Los Palos in the Lautem district. Known for its natural beauty and unique cultural heritage, the district is also the homelands of 30,000 Fataluku-speaking East Timorese, just one of East Timor’s 35 Indigenous languages.
Timor’s Lost Generation – Children who were removed from East Timor by the Indonesian occupiers return to find their families and their identities.
