This book titled Historical vines : Enga networks of exchange, ritual, and warfare in Papua New Guinea written by Pauline Wilson WIESSNER,Aki TUMU and Pupu NITZE, look great. I really like that book.
Yap..i have read through that book and it was very interesting.
but just one ponit is that enga is a province of rich cultural diversity and i hope we contribute some more which i believe are not there.
Otherwise, credit is due for Wiessner, Aki, Pupu and your mother.

hoping to keep the tradition alive.

Tongai patang, u might want to check out out A view of Enga Culture and From Inside the Women's House which are 2 other books by Polly, Alome Kyakas, Aki Tumu, eta al. They are interesting read too with all these songs and chants in Engan that is later translated and exaplained in the context of the book. I personally enjoyed those 2 better than Historical Vines. Anyway, Polly is trying to do rewrites and improve the current editions. She's also doing comparative studies of what it was then and how it is now. Having the Cultural Center with all the info in one place would be great so then people can combine ideas and add what needs to be added to preserve the cultural heritage for future generations. Building is supposed to begin in August so I hope it goes as planned, you never know with PNG timing and the elections and all that jazz.

PS-Regards to you and the rest of the Last Market squad.
