Hello. I plan to continue to add material to this website and blog.
The materials in this website are based upon over three years of ethnographic research between 1980-1993. Visitors are advised that most of these materials were collected over 25 years ago and are not necessarily relevant or accurate concerning present-day Sikaiana life. The materials include an ethnographic description of their lives, a dictionary, photographs, songs and other resources. Visitors who want a quick overview of Sikaiana life can go to the PowerPoints under resources, here.
This site is constantly being updated and revised. Although most of the materials have been uploaded, there are still a some materials that will be added. Visitors might want to check back for additions and updates.
I am indebted to Douglas Scott of Kutztown University for technical advice in developing this site.
Comments can be placed on this page, below.
I have changed the website to being “in progress.” I have some more materials to add but much of the material is here. I am adding an article by Pastor George Vann concerning global warming and Sikaiana under resources. This is a very important issue. I hope to continue to add more relevant materials from others.
The materials in this website may be used for educational, cultural and personal reasons. They cannot be used for any commercial interests.
