Most Indonesians (87 percent) are Muslim. Indonesia is home to the world's largest Muslim population; the majority consider themselves only moderately religious. The Javanese are predominantly Muslim. About 10 percent of the Indonesian population is Christian (mostly Protestant) and 2 percent is Hindu. Some northern areas are predominantly Christian. The tribes in the Kalimantan provinces and Papuans on New Guinea practice animistic religions or Christianity, maintain tight kinship bonds, and have a clan-oriented economic and social life. The people in Bali are mostly Hindu and belong to traditional kinship groups. Many Chinese are Buddhists.
