WOMAN OF THE ARCHIPELAGO - CUT NYAK DIEN


Cut Nyak Dien (1850-1908) has been proclaimed as a National Hero of Indonesia. She, along with her father, husband and many brave people fought against Dutch expansion in Aceh. Also, they had to wage war within ie. against their own people who turned Dutch accomplices and spies and thus traitors.
