Indies
The East Indies or the Indies are the lands of South and Southeast Asia.[1] In a more restricted sense, the Indies can be used to refer to the islands of Southeast Asia, especially the Malay Archipelago.[1][2] The name "Indies" is derived from the River Indus and is used to connote parts of Asia that came under Indian cultural influence. Dutch-held colonies in the area were known for about 300 years as the Dutch East Indies before Indonesian independence, while Spanish-held colonies were known as the Spanish East Indies before the American conquest and later Philippine independence. The East Indies may also include the former French-held Indochina, former British territories Brunei and Singapore and former Portuguese East Timor
