AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Kuma Kelage, daughter of a Chimbu chieftain from a quiet mountain village in the New Guinea Highlands, defied tradition and married a white Australian. With her daughter Ba, she travelled beyond the boundaries of her homeland, journeying through two cultures. Her story is told by her granddaughter, Deborah Carlyon.
