Kuiawa Island

The Trobriand Islands are the northernmost islands in the Milne Bay Province. Kuiawa is to the southwest of the largest of these islands. A visit to one of the smaller Trobriand Islands will always be a cultural emersion. Trobriand Islanders are well known for their gardening skills and for employing magic to grow better produce. Yam gardens are a source of pride for the islanders and yam is not only used as food, but larger yams are publicly displayed to indicate the skill and importance of the owner. View more

On some islands the yam storage huts are prominent features of the villages. Cultural presentations are usually held around harvest time and are not only meant to entertain, but are seen by the locals as a way to show off their wealth and to compete between clans and groups.
