PAWAI is a furry convention based in Jakarta, Indonesia, first occurring in 2018.


The name PAWAI is a bilingual acronym in English and Indonesian:

  • English: Party Along With Anthro Indonesia
  • Indonesian: Pesta Akbar Warga Anthro Indonesia

Additionaly, the word pawai itself is Indonesian for parade.


The mascots for the convention are Nusa and Tara.[1]

Nusa is a komodo dragon, a large monitor lizard found only in the eponymous Komodo Island. This brown scalie represents the archipelago's uniqueness.

Tara is a beautiful and graceful Javan hawk-eagle. She symbolizes the archipelago's enchanting appearance known throughout the world.

The names Nusa and Tara are inspired from the word Nusantara, a name for the archipelago that stretches from Sumatra to Papua.
