Ramadan • Atsj, 2014
Atsj / Yono, a Javanese trader, shoots a firework during the Eid Mubarak celebration. There is
only one mosque in Atsj, with nearly all attendees of the mosques being transmigrants. Only one Asmat man in Atsj, Muhammad, converted to Islam, but he raises his children Catholic. Islam is one of the main religions of the transmigrants living in Asmat. As Asmat is predominantly Catholic, the arrival of the transmigrants create segregation between the Catholics and the Muslims. Some Asmat people are often even bribed to join religious institutions, with a mere payment of instant noodles.
