Story: Old Mana’s Land

Before old Mana died, he took his sons to the forest behind the Village. “I do not have much to give you except this land. I will split it between the two of you”. He showed his sons a boundary that divided the land. Garry, the eldest, received the land east of the boundary. His second son, John, had the land on the West side.

“Look after this land. It has provided our family with crops and building materials. It is our hunting ground”, said Mana.

Later, a logging company visited the village. The company offered money to landowners if they allowed the company to cut down trees for timber. Garry said, “Yes” and took the money. John refused. Six months later, the trees on Garry’s land had all been cut down. The company moved on to the next Village. Garry used his money to build an iron-roofed house. He bought a water tank, a generator and a video. Then his money run out. He could not buy food from the shops. His family became hungry. The loggers had destroyed his gardening land. He went to John’s house and saw bags of taro and potatoes. John was busy cleaning the wild pig he had caught in the forest. Garry had to beg food from John to feed his family.
