Kitava Island is one of the four major coral atolls in the Trobriand Islands archipelago (aka the Kiriwina Islands) located in the Milne Bay Province of SE Papua New Guinea. The islands lie in the Solomon Sea, where many major battles were fought during WWII. To the west lies the main island and administrative centre of Kiriwina. The archipelago is considered to be an important tropical rainforest ecoregion in need of conservation. Kitava is small and flat, roughly 25 sq.km., hot and humid year round. With population in the hundreds, locals are subsistence farmers who live in traditional settlements.

The Massim society of Trobriander Islanders produce some of the most detailed and sought-after ebony carvings and artifacts in the region. They have a culture that traces family lineage through mothers rather than fathers, have unusual customs, such as eating privately, or turning their backs on each another and eating quickly so as not to be observed. Sexual practices are unique, and traditional magic spells are intricately woven into daily life. Yams are their currency, also Kula necklaces and arm bands, though visitors buy items using money. Betel nut is commonly eaten causing teeth to become red.

Life here has changed for centuries, unaffected by external influences. The first European visitor to the islands was the French ship Espérance in 1793, later followed by missionaries, schools and colonialists. Cricket was introduced in 1903 by a missionary with the hope of reducing tribal rivalry and fighting. Today they play a very different game with 40 or more players, with dances and chanting, modified bats and balls and the home team is always the winner! The game replaced inter-island warfare which was forbidden by colonialists. Visitors will be welcomed as they alight on the white sandy beaches by colourfully-dressed locals with their intriguing customs.
