Photo courtesy: Mantiri Family ArchivesIn 1963, Mantiri was photographed with her mother and brothers during the family’s summer trip from Wisconsin to visit relatives in Oregon. On the family’s cross-country trip in 1977, when she was 24, Mantiri met her husband and ended up settling in Oregon. Photo courtesy: Mantiri Family ArchivesSoon after their arrival in the U.S. in 1960, this photo of Mantiri’s family in their living room appeared in the Milwaukee newspaper in an article about the local Presbyterian Church sponsorship of the Mantiris as part of a refugee resettlement project. All the furniture was donated by church members. Photo courtesy: Mantiri Family ArchivesMantiri (far left) attends a birthday party in the Netherlands in 1960, the year she came to the United States, with Indo and Dutch children mingling. Indo families had an open-door policy welcoming in all the neighbors, but white families did not welcome Indos into their homes. Photo courtesy: Mantiri Family ArchivesThe wedding of Mantiri’s Aunt Julia, whose brutal murder during the revolution after World War II was a key influence in her father leaving Indonesia. His last words to Mantiri, who closely resembles her aunt, reflected his sorrow over the loss of this sister and his enduring concern for his daughter. Photo courtesy: Mantiri Family ArchivesNicolaas Pieneman’s painting, “The Arrest of Diepo Negoro by Lieutenant-General De Kock,” (ca. 1830-1835, Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam) depicts the colonial Dutch view of Indonesians peacefully submitting to the victorious Netherlands.
