Asep Kambali (July 16, 1980) from Cianjur is an Indonesian historian who is concerned with the field of Indonesia History of Colonial Era.[1] Asep is known as a "traveling history teacher", an activist in preserving history and culture, also as a founder of Komunitas Historia Indonesia (Indonesia Historia Community).[2] With his community, he reminds younger generations to love their country and nation through understanding and appreciation of Indonesia's traces of history and culture.[3]

Asep is highly dedicated in his field. He encourages his nation to appreciate and relearn about the country's history. “A great nation is the one that can appreciate its history. The reason why this nation is never great is because we refuse to appreciate history”, Asep stated firmly and spiritedly.

But the past is not Asep's only passion. He's also passionate about his name that he co-founded Paguyuban Asep Dunia (World Asep Community). There are so many people bearing the name Asep they made a club out of it.[4]
