Batak people are generally much more straightforward than some other ethnic groups, esp. Javanese and Sundanese, so they are often considered rude. Other ethnic groups who are similarly straightforward don’t seem to have any problem with that, e.g. I never heard any Makassarese complaining about Batak people being rude.

Some of them are very HOT!Like Rachel Maryam or Restu Sinaga or Nadya Hutagalung….

I read in a book, the western worte an interesting story about the Bataks=they were canibals!Eeeep!I don’t know ehther that’s true, or it was only stupid westerner’s tale.

But I have some Batak friends, and they ARE starightforward. If we talk about antrhopology, there are three types of culture in Indonesia:

1. Hindu-Buddhist Culture= Especially found in the farmers groups in the inland, like the Javanesse or Balinesse.

2. Islamic Culture= Especially found in merchant groups in the coastal area, like the Malay, Minang.

3. Pre-historic Culture= Very old and untouched by the religions of Hindu-Buddhist or Islam. Has its own distinctive culture. Like the Bataks, Torajan and various tribes in Papua.

So, why most Indonesians consider them to be rude?It would be because they are different from the other ethnic groups in Indonesia, they were not inflicted with the Hindu and Buddhist, nor the Islam hype. Most Indonesians live in different sphere of norms and ettiquetes, different traditions and “adat”.

So, IMO, it’s not about being savage or something. In fact, there are a lot of people of this pre-historic cultures gained success and fame. There are a lot of Bataks and Torajans in high places in Indonesia, right?

Were the Batak peoples not under the rule of the Srivijaya and Mahapahit Kingdoms ?
