ABOUT

Welcome to the official site of IDN USA Chapter Austin!

History

With over 8 million people, the Indonesian community abroad represents approximately three percent of the Indonesian population. Indonesian communities are found in all seven continents – North America, South America, Antartica, Africa, Europe, Asia and Australia. Indonesians live, study or work overseas and come from different ethnicity, religions, and levels of economy and education. They come with different ideas, skills, and potential.

Together, these constituents form the Indonesian diaspora which can be a real force for helping Indonesian development and creating a better world.┬áBy recognizing the potential of an Indonesian diaspora as a social and economic force for a better Indonesia and a better world, members of the Indonesian diaspora organized themselves as a network to connect and unite members of the Indonesian diaspora all over the world under the banner the ” Indonesian Diaspora Network”. The Indonesian Diaspora Network (IDN) was established as a result of discussions at the Ways Forward Session at the Congress of Indonesian Diaspora (CID) in Los Angeles 2012 and CID II 2013 in Jakarta.

IDN Chapter Austin was formed on February 23, 2013, at Cedar Park Recreation Center, Cedar Park, Texas. Bapak Konjen Al Busyra from KJRI (Konsulat Jenderal Republik Indonesia) Houston witnessed the formation of IDN Chapter Austin. The opening ceremony was opened with Pendet dance. IDN Socialization by Ibu Dita and the Indonesian community in Austin voted 7 people to form the first committee:
