Tok Piksa – Episode 1, 2014

As Papua New Guinea continues to plunge head long into an era dominated by Western influence, there are concerns that a significant part of PNG's traditions previously passed down from generation to generation could be in danger of dying out.

In this episode, Edwin Fidelis looks at some of PNG's dying arts, such as carvings, pottery and hand crafts.

Also we feature 84 year old Phillip Tomo, a skillful carver from East Sepik Province. From his home at Kerevat in East New Britain, he tells his story of how carving making remains a significant practice in his birth district of Angoram.
