TALANOA 2019 THEMES | The event will explore that intersection of the two meanings of the term “Te Kainga” and what that might contribute to the anchoring, as well as the inspiring of Talanoa and Moana people. In iKiribati the term ‘Te kainga’ has two meanings (1) extended family (similar to aiga in Tuvaluan and Samoan) and (2) land, a specific piece of land from the ancestors, passed on from generation to generation. When someone says that they have ‘kainga’, it means that they have relations and ancestral land. To have ‘kainga’ is to be related, to be settled and to be at home.

CALL FOR PAPERS | If you have already submitted a paper or would like to do so please contact the committee via niukainga2018@gmail.com.
