It is exciting to read about the initiative taken by the acedemic in America. I Also strongly believe in what mix-marit is doing. I believe, if all parents take the responsibility to educated their children, so that their children learn two cultures concurrently, it would be a way of saving our culture.

If we all, participating in this discussion use our initiative to educate children with the Enga culture and language, it would go a long way in preserving our culture.

The academic concerned has the following areas of specialization

Hunter-gatherers, cultural systems of sharing and exchange, ethnoarchaeology, ethology ecology, warfare, oral history; Highland Papua New Guinea, southern Africa.

It would be even nice to see our own Engans venturing into streams like this. When that happens, I am sure we'll have very detailed and accurate information about our cultures and systems on record for our future generations.

These kinds of things need massive financial support and years of perseverance.

However with the readily available technology (video camera, digital camera, MP3 recorder, computers), we can do much better.

When things are done properly, it can be become a source of revenue (direct or indirect).

However, it's a pity that today's students appear to think that there's money to make in law, medicine, engineering, IT and those urban based trades only.
