The Lasalaga Project is Louis Buana’s research of the ancient legend of Lasalaga, the fierce ruler of Mamuju, West Sulawesi. Of Balinese-Sulawesi heritage, Lasalaga’s story highlights the harmonious relationship between two different ethnicities and cultures. In an attempt to reach a wide audience, the reinterpretation of this legend combines traditional Kamasan art with new media, as well as, the publication of a children’s storybook. Louie Buana and Kathryn Wellen talk about this fascinating initiative.
