Indonesian Folklores and Legends

Indonesia consists of more than 250 ethnic groups, which speak more than 500 different languages.

From all these ethnic groups, a lot of folklores and legends have arisen. Many books have been published to spread the knowledge of these stories to the young generations, and now, there are also blogs that attempt to collect those stories for people to read.

I believe that there are a lot of people who would like to read these stories, so I put a link to a good blog that I recently found while looking for folklores to tell my son, Ariq.

This particular blog is written in Indonesian, and I am thinking (I'm trying not to disappoint anyone by saying 'seriously planning') to translate these stories to English. I am also still trying to find if there is any blog for Indonesian folklores and legends that is written in English.

Here is the link.. .

Wish me luck, and enjoy the stories
