November 9, 2001


By Raobeia K. Sigrah and Stacey M. King

This book is the first ever written by a Banaban and is a must for those who want to know the history of Banaba from the indigenous people themselves, who guarded and preserved their history and culture for centuries long before the arrival of the missionaries and phosphate company at the turn of the 19th century. This work is endorsed by the Banaban elders, who asked for the truth finally to be told, and raises many new issues never before revealed.

Over 50 photos, maps and drawings are included.

Published by Institute of Pacific Studies, University of South Pacific, Fiji.
