The name of Jayakarta means City of Great Victory and then changed into Batavia during Dutch accoupation periode in 1619. Shortly after the outbreak of world war II, Batavia fell into the hands of the invading Japanese forces that changed the name of the city into ‘ Jakarta’ as a gesture aimed at winning the sympathy of the Indonesians. The name was retained after Indonesia independence day, August 17, 1945.

Not less 9 million people live in Jakarta representing nearly all the ethnic groups in the archipelago. The major groups are Sundanese, Javanese, Chinese, and the native community: Orang Betawi (people of Betawi). The other large groups are the Minangkabau people, the Bataks, the Manadonase, and the other people from Sulawesi and the Ambonase.

In 1923 they founded an organization called Kaum Betawi, which was in fact a statement about the existence of the Betawi ethnic group.
