You're rehashing something that has already been addressed in this thread. There was no such thing as '350 years of Dutch colonial rule' over the East Indies. Dutch colonial rule effectively started only in 1800 when the Dutch republic nationalized the possessions of the Vereenigde Oost-Indische Compagnie. Furthermore, most of the archipelago was actually conquered fairly recent. The map below illustrates this very well.
Thank you for this. I was confusing the VOC with Dutch Colonial rule.
