British Sumatra: The legend of the Islands EditBritish Sumatra wasn't always a peaceful country like it is today. Before, is was a bunch of loosely held tribes (kind of like ancient Greece) that were ALWAYS fighting. This repeated until the 1700s. Captain Cook (a British man, not a pirate) found Indonesia. Next thing you know, the tribes were being destroyed, natives taken for slaves or killed, and British colonies popped up. By the 1900s, it was more of a base then a colony. The natives were tired of being slaves, so in 1991, the Brit Sumatries rebelled. This started the 4-war chain of the Brit Sumatrian Wars, 1991-2000. The Sumtrians won, and gained independence. Then, British Sumatra rebuilt, and all was fine... maybe.
