In August 1999, hundreds of thousands of East Timorese voted overwhelmingly to end two-and-a-half decades of Indonesian rule. The price they paid to exercise their choice was high. Anti-independence militias went on a rampage of violence and destruction.  With the assistance of the United Nations, the East Timorese embarked on a remarkable journey to nationhood.

 

This Independence Commemorative book "Viva Timor-Leste" captures through stories, antidotes and photographs, the struggles, achievements and birth of a new nation.

Throughout the book the design incorporates traditional woven patterns ‘Tais’ and iconic symbols such as the crocodile, which is considered the protector of this small island.
