Description
Summary:This collection of 10 documents about the Northeastern Massim deal primarily with the time period from 1845 to 1999. The Austronesian speaking Northeastern Massim peoples occupy a region encompassing the northeastern offshore islands of Milne Bay Province, Papua New Guinea. The collection concentrates heavily on the kula exchange in the broader North Massim (including the Trobriands) especially in: Damon (1983 "What moves the Kula", 1990, 2002); Young (1983); and Munn (1986). Damon's studies deal primarily with the Muyuw area, with particular emphasis on Wabunum village where he did most of his field work. In contrast, Munn did her work on much smaller Gawa. Damon (1990) provides the best general overview. Other topics given varying degrees of coverage in this collection are: mortuary rites and marriage (Damon 1989); kinship (Damon 1983 "Muyuw kinship"); internal and external changes (Damon 1983 "On the transformation"); history, trade, and culture change (Young 1983); and symbolic theory analysis (Munn 1986, 1990).
