Abstract:

"Michael Kwa'ioloa grew up in the forested homeland of his ancestors on the Pacific island of Malaita and discovered the wider world by moving to the town of Honiara, capital of Solomon Islands. Living Tradition is the story of how his life changed as he came to terms with a world of contrasting cultures and values, combining family instruction and school, ancestral ghosts and born-again Christianity, shell money exchanges and work for cash, restitution of wrongs and government law. Kwa'ioloa's candid description of his personal development, of challenges and achievements, contradictions and setbacks, is also a record of the life and times of his Kwara'ae people." "Living Tradition is a work of collaboration between Michael Kwa'ioloa and Ben Burt, an anthropologist who has been researching the culture and history of the Kwara'ae since 1979."--BOOK JACKET.
