Even though English is taught in schools and seen as the language of business and government, Tok Pisin is a symbol of national identity. | LANGUAGE


10: Village subsistence centers on horticulture have different chores for men and women. Men clear forests and bushes so that their wives can plant gardens and tend to the pigs. Some crops, such as coffee, bananas, and sugarcane are planted and tended by men.Even though men and women do the same amount of work. The men are still paid more.. Men build houses and fences, while women make grass skirts and net bags called (bilums). Women do the daily cooking, while the men kill the animals. Both of them look after the children. It is very common for a woman to be raped by her employer or husband or any other male who thinks she is becoming to superior or smart. If a man feels a threat toward a women it usually will result in violence.

11: MARRIAGE | The choice of a marriage partner mostly concerns the men. Once a man chooses his bride they will spend time together in supervised courtship sessions. Ideal marriage partners are hardworking men and attractive. Clan exogamy is a must, and parents hope that their daughters marry prosperous suitors whose kin pay large bride-prices, and will help out in war and trade. If a women is put into an unsuitable marriage she is allowed to run away to her home, run away with her lover and never come back, or commit suicide.. In some cases they have polygymy, where the men have many wives. If you are a large man it is probable that you will have many wives.

12: CANNIBALISM | Cannibalism is legal in Papua New Guinea. It is a widely supported tradition. When someone in your kin dies, the ritual is to eat them. BUT you can only eat them if they die from NATURAL circumstances.

13: The main focus of their religions is reflected in the intense involvement of Papua New Guineans in the ritual maintenance of their own spiritual and physical well-being. All adults will acquire magic spells used in gardening, healing or preventing minor illnesses, and love magic. Many people possess a knowledge of sorcery or witchcraft. Big men possess powerful spirit mediums and healing powers and deadly war sorcery. Witches are deviant or marginalized individuals who are suspected of using their relations with spirits and other cosmic forces to harm members of their own groups. | RELIGION

14: Papua New Guinea Landscape

15: Papua New Guinea consists of eastern New Guinea along with New Britian, New Ireland, Bougainville, and six hundred small islands and archipelagoes. The land area is over 178,000 square miles, with a mainland accounting for 80 percent.It is covered in tropical rain forest. Upland valleys and the headwaters consist of fast flowing rivers that descend into the coast of some of the worlds largest swamps.

16: I am only human I wonder when we wont care about materialistic things I hear people talk about what pretty is to them I see insecure girls, when they don't need to be I am only human I pretend i don't care I feel as if we focus to much on physical I touch my parents credit cards I worry if they notice the bill I cry when they notice the bill I am only human I understand the different concepts of beauty i say we are all pretty I dream about candy I try to be nice I think fat is beautiful I am only human | I AM

17: DEVELOPMENT | Villagers produce most of their own food, and many townspeople plant gardens and rely on open-air markets for fruits and vegetables sold by village women using kina for currency. Urban supermarkets import an array of expensive foods and other items. Most residents rely on small trade stores for rice, sugar, tea, and tinned fish, as well as soap, clothing, blankets, kerosene lanterns, and matches.

18: Quality of Life | Commerce is centered in the towns. Papua New Guinea developed its own television station in the late 1980s, and radio news and entertainment shows reach most villages. Tourism brings forty thousand visitors a year, mostly to the Sepik River and Trobriands. The road system is limited. Port Moresby is cut off from the rest of the country except by air and ship. With most places being difficult to reach, there are many undeveloped areas and labor migration is high. They live a pretty independent life. They do not rely on technology, they do everything by hand.
