What's new at The Anuki Country Press

We welcome comments at this blog. It is a forum through which you can discuss things concerning the Anuki people of the Milne Bay Province. Recently it was learned that the Bible has been translated into the Anuki language and that the Anuki people are preparing to go to the launching in June or August this year. If you have learned anything new about this launching then do let us know at The Anuki Country Press. Your opinion matters a lot to us. We look forward to hearing from you.

You can also send comments on PNG literature and PNG writers. Anything we are not aware of let us know.

Also keep an eye out for Soaba's Storyboard which appears Fridays in the The National Weekender. Good stuff to read, especially for the student of literature, cultural studies and other disciplines not far removed from the world of literature, the arts and social sciences.

The Anuki Bible launching noted above took place in July of this year. An article has been written about it and that seems to be a popular read on this blog.

This is an older posting but since it is oft visited by our viewers we might as well use it as our bulletin board.

Were the Kaiwatra mines a myth or legend? Something akin to H.R. Haggard's King Solomon's Mines? Or was it an historical kind of reality that got blown away to the furthermost corners of human memory? Why was its existence so exciting yet mysterious like Papua New Guinea's other waves of cargo cult activities semblances of which were seen in the famous Vailala Madness of the Purari Delta and the Paliau Movement of Manus? Those questions the Anuki people ask today and would like to see reasonable answers. A full story of this will be presented shortly in Soaba's Storyboard of these blogs.
