We recognise that if we neglect our cultural and historic roots, and think only of the present and the material aspects of life, we will be overwhelmed by the forces of globalisation and risk losing our unique cultural identity – the very thing we fought so long and hard to preserve.
Since independence in 2002, we have taken steps to encourage and preserve the cultural heritage of Timor-Leste. The National Parliament (Uma Fukun) in Dili has been rehabilitated and its historical significance preserved. The Dare Memorial: Cafe and Museum was opened in April 2010 and the first phase of the Timorese Resistance Archive and Museum was completed in 2005. Since then, hundreds of important documents about the resistance have been digitised and are now available on the internet for anyone to view.
As a nation, we are honouring our past and our veterans. We have inaugurated the Garden of Heroes in Metinaro as a national memorial and place of reflection. We have also opened and are expanding the Timorese Resistance Archive and Museum. The State has established a register of former combatants of armed resistance and we are providing a level of social protection through the payment of pensions to veterans and their families. Timor-Leste has undertaken great effort to meet our duty and comply with the provisions of the Constitution. But we must do more.
“After ten years of independence attention should be given to culture development because it was culture that gave us independence.”
Atanásio Francisco Tavares, elder representative, Maucatar, National Consultation, 30 July 2010.
