About Banaba
An extremely remote isolated island several hundred kilometres to the west of the Gilberts Group. It is a raised atoll, rising several tens of metres above sea level. Extensive phosphate deposits were mined from the turn of the century until 1979. These deposits, destined for processing into fertiliser, were sold at below world market prices to Australia and New Zealand and helped 'kick start' these major agricultural economies. It is indeed curious that 1979 should also have been the year of Kiribati independence. The inhabitants, the Banabans, never quite saw the justice of shipping their homeland to Australia in bulk carriers in return for an inadequate number of small pieces of paper termed "Royalties" and were a constant thorn in the side of the British Phosphate Commissioners. When there was insufficient of their homeland left (ie the village areas were to be mined) they were resettled on Rambi Island in Fiji in about 1947 (which they had to buy with their own money!) where the community resides to this day. Some have returned to Banaba. In retrospect their treatment seems rather shabby, but I suspect that they would have fared worse under many other possible colonial regimes. [PS Does anyone know how the Nauruans were treated by the Germans prior to 1914? It would make an interesting comparison.]

Canoe racing, volleyball and soccer are all popular on the islands, but more traditional pursuits, such as intricate and beautiful dances - particularly on Tabiteuea - an indigenous martial art and making figures out of string are still practised. Also important in Kiribati are chants for one to four voices that honour particular achievements, such as initiation rites. The chants are not normally accompanied by dance. The I-Kiribati (as locals are known, pronounced 'ee-kee-ree-bus') speak a Micronesian dialect, although English is widely used in official communications. The local alphabet has only 13 letters, with 'ti' standing in for 's'. The missionaries got their talons in early, and the Kiribati Protestant Church today has over 28,000 followers and the Catholic Church close to 40,000. Religion is taken very seriously, and the further south you go the more you should avoid doing anything that looks remotely like work (even darning your beach towel could be frowned upon). Traditional customs and beliefs still survive, which is not surprising for a people who have lived so closely to a force as mysterious as the sea for so long. Belief in the power of magic and the existence of ghosts ( anti ) is widespread, and small shrines are common in the bush. The clan is the basic building block of society, and authority throughout the islands is invested in the

The building and racing of sailing canoes is a popular pastime. Musical composition and dancing in customary styles are regarded as art forms and are the basis of widespread competition. Volleyball and football (soccer) are now widely played.

    Log Transcript This is Genevieve Johnson speaking to you from the Odyssey. Last night we anchored just outside the lagoon of Abemama, a beautiful pacific atoll in order to complete some minor maintenance work. Abemama is probably about as remote a place as one can get. It is one of the outer islands of the Gilbert Island group here in Kiribati. Setting foot on shore is akin to stepping back in time, it is a place little disturbed by outside influences. With no tourism here, outsiders rarely visit, and local tradition remains strong. Abemama is a chance to experience I-Kiribati culture as it was 200, 500 even 1000 years ago. 'Tioti' invited us into his maneaba to share stories on whales, the sea and making copra. Photo: Chris Johnson Log by Genevieve Johnson < Back Home Voice from the Sea What is the Voyage? ...

    Log Transcript According to I-Kiribati culture, the first sign of womanhood is the onset of the menstrual cycle. For the family of any young girl, this is a time of joy and celebration. For the first 3 days of this transition into womanhood, the girl is housebound along with her Grandmother who will educate her in the ways of her new role as a housewife and mother. She must learn to cook, clean and weave, and is no longer permitted to spend time playing with friends. Nei detua was seated at a table in the center of the meeting house, where she was accompanied by a young boy. This is a symbol of her readiness for marriage and family. The boy chosen on such occasions may or may not be party to an arranged marriage. Nonetheless, tradition dictates that he must be the first born, as it is this child who will receive the bulk of his parents wealth, in turn ensuring he will be a successful provider for his new family. Receiving such an invitation allowed us a fascinating insight into a culture that in many ways has successfully managed to integrate the intrusions of the outside world into their oasis in the middle of the sea, while still maintaining much of their traditional lifestyle.

Having already lived and worked in Kiribati as a photographer and teacher for eight years, Mr Whincup says Akekeia! Traditional Dance the Kiribati was in many ways a journey back to the source. Through Massey, Mr Whincup registered a research project seeking to explore the significance of traditional dance in contemporary culture. His wife, Joan, conducted the interviews and wrote up the transcripts. A Sydney travel agent covered the air fares and accommodation costs, plus the $150,000 publication costs. As the project gathered momentum, everyone connected with the dance was interviewed, including costume makers, educators and church leaders.

    Kiribati INTRODUCTION The Republic of Kiribati first gained its political independence from Britain on 12 th July, 1979 and comprises of 33 coral atolls with the total land area of 860 square kilometres widely scattered over 3.5 million square kilometres of the Pacific Ocean. It lies astride the equator between the new International Date Line which marks its border at the 150 degrees West of Greenwich longitude and the 170 degrees East of Greenwich longitude. It is divided up into 3 main groups of islands, known as the Gilbert, the Line and the Phoenix groups. The main capital, Tarawa is situated in the Gilbert group whilst Kiritimati island, known as the largest coral atoll in the world, serves as the main administrative headquarters for the Line and Phoenix groups. Kiribati has a population of over 86,350 people according to the 1995 census with a total GDP for 1998 as 72,129 (Aus$1,000). The GDP per capital is Aus$844.00 and the literacy rate in 1995 is 7%. The majority of the population is mainly micronesians, however, over the years, mixing with Chinese, Europeans, Melanesians and Polynesians had taken place.

    Mobility, and people leading a mobile life are my main research interest. Originally from Cologne, Germany, I studied geography, anthropology and botany and completed a master thesis about fun-fairs (shows, carnivals) at the University of Cologne. Fieldwork included observations, open interviews and some network research techniques with families working on fun-fairs and conducting mobile life styles. I also conducted several questionnaire-based surveys with people attending fun-fairs. Having been introduced to families that had to cope with seasonal-circular mobility and were up to nine months "on the road" I became very curious about different forms of mobility, such as circulation and migration and the coping mechanisms of families. Seamen and fishermen in Kiribati are interesting subjects for research on mobility and migration because of the special form of their migration. Migrants work on a variety of vessels including German freighters and containerships, Japanese or Korean purse seiners and long line trailers. They leave families for up to two years to live almost continuously on ships. Migrants cannot take their families to "settle down" abroad, they are permanently separate from their families. Furthermore, as employees of foreign companies they are not protected by their own legislation. Thus, they are vulnerable to exploitation. Families at home highly benefit from their remittances but have to cope without the young men, who are overseas and with little or and in some cases with no means of communication.
