During the last stages of the Dutch colonial era, the area east of java and Kalimantan was known as the Great East and later known as East or Eastern Indonesia. On 24 December 1946, the State of East Indonesia was formed covering the same area (but also including [[ Western New Guinea]]). It was a component of the United States of Indonesia, and was dissolved into the unitary Republic of Indonesia in August 1950.[1]
