Island mobilities : spatial and social mobility on Ontong Java, Solomon Islands

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Ontong Javans are always on the move to and from their gardens or the sea, between islands within the atoll, and to other localities both within and outside Solomon Islands. The article explores the nature of this mobility and the ways in which the spatial mobility of Ontong Javans is linked to their livelihood strategies and to social mobility. Ontong Javans are highly mobile on a range of spatial and temporal scales. Mobility is shown to be especially linked to changes in livelihood opportunities, which have varied greatly over the years.
