In this episode:
Papua New Guinea is both ethnically and linguistically diverse. It has over 850 indigenous languages and cultures from its 22 provinces, from the highlands to the coast.
In this second edition of Olsem Wanem, we cover culture & traditions in Papua New Guinea, defining culture and what it means in today’s society.
We feature the interesting cultural debate surrounding the removal of artefacts from the House of Parliament; the National Museum; the National Cultural Proprty (Preservation) Act 1965 and cultural festivals from the Papua New Guinea Tourism Promotion Authority.
Also in this edition, for the first time, we show inserts from a John Faunt film called “Lukautim Pasin Tumbuna”.
