On the 30th of June we usually commemorate the passing away of my late father: DR GSSJ Ratulangie, who was proclaimed by the Government of Indonesia as a National Hero.Due to some reasons this year The DR GSSJ RATULANGIE Foundation will have shifted some  activities to November 2012 where a SAM RATULANGIE week is planned to be held. See also the2011 commemoration.

It was a surprise to us that there were other persons and an institution that arranged to commemorate this day too, as you will see on the following pictures.

MANADO

In MANADO a Seminar was organised to discuss an ancient philosophy “TUMOU TOU”. This traditional wisdom was later in 1927 brought forward again at a discussion in Amurang held in 1925 that was held related to education of teachers at that time.
