The second monthly Bale Banjar Culture Club – a series of free lectures and presentations held on the second Sunday of each month at the Ayodya Resort Bali – will take place on Sunday, December 10, 2017, when long-time Bali resident and author Jan Mantjika will discuss her book, “Bali 1964 to 2009: The Shadows that Dance in and out of my Memory.”


A young New Zealander when she first arrived in Bali with her Balinese Columbo Plan husband and an infant daughter in 1964, Mantjika was forced to comprehend her way through a confusing Babylon of new languages; hungrily live from hand to mouth in a world of never-ending shortages; cheerfully accept demands to fulfill the ritual and cultural demands of being a dutiful Balinese wife; and negotiate daily life in a country experiencing a whirlpool of nationalistic frenzy where foreigners were often viewed with fear and loathing.

Arriving in Bali during the “years of living dangerously,” Jan raised her young family from within the confines of a Balinese compound while tumultuous events of precipitated by the “failed” coup of 1965 unfolded around her. Many historians claim that the bloodletting and social upheaval that followed the "night of the generals" reached its frenzied peak in Bali 1965-1966 as Jan protectively clung to her children as angry crowds marched down Bali's streets. Food and daily essentials, such as soap, were hard to come by as neighbors whispered over backyard walls about acquaintances who had suddenly disappeared and local rivers and beaches strewn with the bodies of the newly massacred.

Jan’s book and memories span the period from the troublesome 1960s to modern Indonesia, a period in which she raised a family, established a successful travel agency, and became a valued patron of a foundation assisting handicapped and disabled people in Bali.

Jan will read selections from her book and share anecdotes from her remarkable life during her appearance the Bale Banjar Culture Club on December 10, 2017.

A limited number of Jan Mantjika’s books (Saritaksu Press, 2015), now in its second printing, will be available for purchase and author’s autograph during the December 10th gathering – just in time for Christmas giving.


Dr. Lawrence Blair
