This text analyses the 2006 crisis in East Timor. It suggests that the historical background to the structuring of the East Timorese resistance to Indonesian occupation and the morals of reciprocity are important facts that enable a better understanding of how the crisis unfolded. This argument is supported by discussion of certain aspects of the 2005 disputes between the Catholic Church and the Fretilin Government relating to the issue of teaching religion in public schools, and by the 2007 presidential elections. In the complex context of the East Timor nation-building process, an ideology of reciprocity transformed the regional opposition between Lorosa'e/Firaku and Loromonu/Kaladi into a socio-political concern.
