a word wrongly used by all indonesians. they use this term as a slang to refer to all indonesians. the real usage of this word is to refer to indonesians of european heritage. they are the highest number of mixed raced people in the world.

the caste system during colonial era;
1. Dutch (European)
2. Indo (Mix-heritage/ indo-european)
3. Native/pribumi

most indos do not know how they came to be, as why they have lighter hair or why they look more white. this can be inferred that their native ancestors were raped by the dutch colonials.

notable indos in indonesia - barry prima, ferry sonneville, mia audina, sophia latjuba,etc

indos in netherlands - gio van bronkhorst, robin van persie, johnny heitinga, mata hari

indos in rest of world - van halen brothers, michelle branch, mark -paul gosselaar, petra verkaik, etc
He's an Indo not a native

Dia orang indo bukan pribumi
