The agrarian law notes that prior to its promulgation, there exists many different treatments between groups of peoples in Indonesia. This treatment complicates the matter and is not in accordance with the unitary goals of the nation. This is one of the reasons why the agrarian law does not differentiate between indigenous and non-indigenous, but between Indonesian nationals and Indonesian non-nationals.
