Abstract

This study of the inhabitants of Ongaia village in the Kilenge area of Papua New Guinea documents the role of labor migration in one area of New Britain. It notes that the potential for migration seems to vary with several factors: opportunities at the destination and perceptions of those opportunities| pressures in the village such as population, productivity, perceived need for cash, and social values| and connections between town and village. The analysis concludes that migration is an integral part of the Kilenge society's enculturation process. (Authors).
