In October 2021, the Teluk Wondama Regency Government collaborated with the UGM Urban and Regional Planning Master to prepare the Bukit Aitumieri tourist area, Teluk Wondama Regency, West Papua Province. The Aitumieri Cultural Conservation Area in Teluk Wondama Regency is a relic site during the Zending period, which is evidence of the legacy of the beginning of civilization for the Papuans. The heritage site of the Papuan civilization has strong moral and spiritual ties to the Papuan people, so its appeal will never be lost. This area has several historical heritage points, including the Stone of Civilization, where Pastor S.I.Kijne stepped when giving lessons, S.I.Kijne’s residence, the Stone of Inspiration which is where S.I.Kijne meditated and looked for inspiration, the Aitumieri School and Student Dormitory, and the Miei Church.
If rebuilt, this potential will show the value of conservation and provide economic benefits for the region and demonstrate the importance of solid local wisdom in the future. On this basis, in the Detailed Spatial Planning (RDTR) for the Rasiei Urban Area, the Aitumieri Cultural Conservation area is designated as a Priority City Area Sub-Section. The purpose of preparing the Masterplan for the Aitumieri Hills Area is to accelerate the preservation and development of the Aitumieri Cultural Conservation Site following the priorities of the Regional Head and the Elected Deputy Regional Head. The preparation of the Aitumieri Cultural Conservation Area DED is to produce a development and preservation concept with historical and local wisdom value and support historical and cultural tourism in Teluk Wondama Regency sustainability.
