Summoned by the Kula Chiefs

Join the Adventures of Justin and Sanakoli and support the traditional cultures of Papua New Guinea.

On the phone to Papua New Guinea, I spoke with Sanakoli John (one of the three master sailors from our New Guinea circumnavigation).

Sanakoli told me that him and his brother Justin John, together with our proud canoe Tawali Pasana, had been summoned to a Kula* meeting by a Chief on Woodlark Island.
