    • found: Wikipedia, Dec. 13, 2011(Papua comprises most of the western half of the island of New Guinea and nearby islands; the province originally covered the entire western half of New Guinea. In 2003, the Indonesian government declared the westernmost part of the island, around Bird's Head Peninsula, a separate province--its name was first West Irian Jaya and is now West Papua; During the Dutch colonial era the region was known as part of "Dutch New Guinea" or "Netherlands New Guinea". Since its annexation in 1969, it became known as "West Irian" or "Irian Barat" until 1973, and thereafter renamed "Irian Jaya". This was the official name until the name "Papua" was adopted in 2002)
