Cut Nyak Meutia, also known as Cut Meutia, (1870 - 24 October 1910) is an Indonesian national hero from Aceh.

Meutia was born in 1870 in Perlak, Aceh. When she grew into adulthood, she married Teuku Sam Searah. They divorced not long afterward.

Against the Dutch.

Cut Nyak Meutia's new husband was Cut Muhammad or Teuku Cik Tunong. Differing from his brother, Cut Muhammad did not obey the Dutch because he didn't accept their colonization of Aceh. Cut Muhammad and his wife worked hand in hand with the Acehnese to fight against the Dutch.

Cut Nyak MeutiaIn 1899 Teuku Cik Tunong led a successful attack against the Dutch. In the beginning, the Dutch troops were at a loss as to what to do. In the following two years, however, Cik Tunong and his troops had not made any movements. The Dutch thought that they might have lost their spirit. Yet in 1901, Teuku Cik Tunong and his troops made a sudden attack and succeeded in destroying the Dutch defense there.

For his success, Teuku Cik Tunong was soon appointed District Chief of Keureutoe by the Sultan of Aceh. From 1901 to 1903 Teuku Cik Tunong had been the commander of some battles in the northeast of Aceh. There, he and his troops killed 10 of soldiers of the Dutch and seized 67 guns from them. Mubin and Pang Gadeng, two surrendered spies, had made Cut Nyak Meutia and her husband successful in the battles.

In 1905 Teuku Cik Tunong was caught by the Dutch and put in jail. He was shot dead by them in the same year.

The death of Teuku Cik Tunong had made Cut Nyak Meutia struggle with the new commander, Pang Nanggroe, who was her last husband. Pang Nanggroe was also killed in the battle on September 26, 1910. His death made Cut Nyak Meutia the new commander, with only 45 men and 13 guns left.

Cut Nyak Meutia was found by the Dutch in September 1910 at her hideaway in Paya Cicem. She resisted capture, wielding a rencong. She was killed after Dutch troops shot her in the head and chest.

She is now seen as a symbol of pride among Indonesian woman, along with other heroines such as Raden Ayu Kartini and Cut Nyak Dhien. On May 2, 1964 she was proclaimed a National Hero of Indonesia.

Many outsiders who remember or imagine a stone jump Nias with, so there is also the thought that all people are able to jump a stone Nias prepared to reach a height of 2 m in thickness 40 cm. Jump stone is a tradition of South Nias people, especially Telukdalam. This tradition is not usually done by the people of Nias in other regions, and only men who do it. It has also been an indication of cultural differences or "lelehur" ancestral people of Nias. Which must be known again, there never was woman who jumped stone Nias. In the beginning a stone jump, not like we are witnessing now. Both functions and how its control. First jump is a combination of sports and folk games are free, not commercial tradition. Jumping is not just the consumption of stone or "atrakasi" tourism as we see today. Jumps are stone tools and processes to shows of strength and agility of youth, so it has a prestigious heroic soul. If a son of one family was able to pass a stone that has been prepared packed it in a way the jump, this is one of pride for parents and other relatives and even the whole village community in general. That is why after the boys they were able to pass through, then held a modest celebration by slaughtering chickens or other animals. Even some young nobles who entertained his village because it can jump with perfect stone for the first time. These young people will become advocates youth village "samu'i mbanua or la'imba Horo" if there is a conflict with other villagers. Looking at the ability of a young man who can jump the stone perfectly, then he is considered to have grown up and mature physically. Because it's rights and social obligations as adults can be run. For example: married, defended his village or join the enemy stormed the village and so on. One way to measure the maturity and the maturity of a man is by looking at the motor skills on a rock stacking height 2 meters. Because of pride, then any young man not to be outdone by the others. Since the age of about 7-12 years or in accordance with the growth of a person, young boys usually play with a jump rope. They stuck two either side of the pole, making the stone pedestal, and then jump. From that low, and for long elevated. There is also with the help of two friends who hold each end of the rope, and the others jump in rotation. They played with spirit and struggle.

The Garuda claws gripping a white ribbon scroll inscribed with the national motto Bhinneka Tunggal Ika written in black text, which can be loosely translated as "Unity in Diversity". Garuda Pancasila was designed by Sultan Hamid II from Pontianak, supervised by Sukarno, and was adopted as the national emblem on 11 February 1950.

Garuda, the vehicle (vahana) of Vishnu appears in many temples of ancient Indonesia. Temples such as Mendut, Borobudur, Sajiwan, Prambanan, Penataran, Belahan, and Sukuh depict the images (bas-relief or statue) of Garuda. In Prambanan temple complex there is a single temple located in front of Vishnu temple, dedicated to Garuda. However there is no statue of Garuda inside the chamber today. In the Shiva temple, also in Prambanan complex, there is a relief telling an episode of Ramayana about Garuda's nephew who also belongs to the bird-god race, Jatayu, tried to rescue Sita from Ravana's hand. The deified statue of King Airlangga depicted as Vishnu mounting Garuda from Belahan, probably the most famous statue of Garuda from ancient Java. Now the statue is one of the important collection of Trowulan Museum.
