Abstract

On 13 October 2005 the leaders of the island of Simeulue were presented with a prestigious award by the United Nations (UN ISDR, 2005). The Sasakawa Award for Disaster Reduction was given in recognition of the island community losing a remarkably low number of people during the 26 December 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami. The award paid tribute to the fact that Simeulue accomplished a “unique achievement in the midst of all the death in Aceh due to the tsunami” (UN ISDR, 2005:1) and acknowledged that an oral story saved the community.
