Product Information
The author worked for fifteen years as a missionary with the Open Brethren (Christian Missions in Many Lands) in the Lumi area (West Sepik Province) of Papua New Guinea. Only after nine years did he break with his mission’s tradition and attend a Fish singsing in the area. His description of the festival is personal, without losing the depth and detail of a professional ethnography. His social interpretation of the “singsing” is an analysis of the matrilineal relationships which are manifested during the festival. In the words of P.D. McKenzie: “This is an important book. I would go so far as to describe it as one of the most significant books on missionary work that I have read.”
