Over a hundred years after they were collected from villagers across the colony of British New guinea, thirty-six objects are reconnected with descendants of those who had made, used and traded or gifted them to Sir William MacGregor. The rich, funny and emotive stories arising from the encounter between contemporary Papua New Guineans and historic objects emphasise the important roles that the PNG National Museum and Art Gallery collections play in keeping the diverse and unique cultures of this country alive, and also in finding identities, in a complex modern world.
