The audio is from the predominantly Motu village of Tubusereia, near Moresby.

The depositor, Ian Campbell, recalls: "The recording was made when I was staying in the village in 1969-70 as part of the NUAUS ‘Village’ Scheme which operated in the late Australian colonial admin period and in 1969 was in its second year of operation – first was in 1968 – Australian uni students stay in PNG villages. Prior to the village stay I had been in contact, inter alia, at UNSW with Charles Lepani, who was then an undergrad at UNSW, now is PNG High Commissioner to Australia, and others, including Bernard Narakobi, later PNG Supreme Court Justice. Tubuseriea was the home village of Renagi Lohia, first PNG Ambassador to UN. The family I stayed with in Tubusereia was ‘Leah’. Later visited Wewak, Goroka, Chimbu area, Mt Hagen, Lae, Rabaul, including meetings in Rabaul with John Kaputin, later PNG Finance and Trade Minister."
