Acerca de


Te Rii ni Banaba (the backbone of Banaba) is a history of the people of Banaba, through their genealogies, myths, legends, customs, culture, sports, music, dance, totems, and magic rituals. The authors discuss anthropological, archaeological, and linguistic evidence that point to the uniqueness of the Banaban people.

Te Rii ni Banaba, which brings to light new research, including long kept secrets of the te Aka clan, and the successive invasions of Banaba. The Auriaria established Tabwewa District and their customs were distinct from those of the people who preceded them. Nei Anginimaeao's arrival led to new boundaries and the introduction of new rights, resulting in the emergence of a different culture again. Then the I-Matang arrived. First, White beachcombers, blackbirders, whalers, and missionaries came, followed by miners. The Japanese occupied the island during World War II. Mining and war led to displacement of the Banaban people, who were twice exiled from their homeland - first to Kosrae, Nauru, and Tarawa during the war, then to Rabi (Fiji) afterward. Always remote and now decimated form mining, Banaba remains in the hearts of all Banabans who still retain their original culture, as detailed in this book.
