KIMBE - It all starts with individual Papua New Guineans changing our mindsets, how we see things.
Our choices must reflect our families, clans, tribes and villages - our communities, not the prime minister by himself.
James Marape needs our help, the help of simple Papua New Guineans adhering to instructions. Like our tumbunas [forebears], we are capable of doing wonders for this country of diverse cultures, the unique, special, invaluable cultures that bind us as one and so set us apart.
We are not to copy Western influences; we have the right to choose our own path. Our culture is our identity.
1 – Mining was introduced by white men for the greed of money and wealth accumulation.
2 - Oil and gas exploitation was introduced by white men for the greed of money and wealth accumulation.
3 - The requirement to have a job to sustain oneself was introduced by white men for the greed of money and wealth accumulation.
4 – Corporations were introduced by white men for the greed of money and wealth accumulation.
And the list goes on.
Now 5 – Papua New Guinean culture. Invaluable, priceless identity.
What is the point or the logic when greed for money and wealth accumulation is the goal.
Why should I be required to always have money when I do not need it all.
I know how to make a garden, plant banana suckers and taro and kaukau and kumu and yams that are healthy and 100% organic.
