TrobriandsOceaniaother subsistence combinations
The Trobriands live primarily on four islands in Milne Bay Province, northeastern Papua New Guinea. The islands are Kiriwina, Kaileuna, Kitava, and Vakuta. Kiriwina has been the most extensively studied of the four Islands. The Kilivila language belongs to the Milne Bay Family of Austronesian languages. Trobriands are primarily horticulturalists who produce large yam harvests in addition to other crops. Fish provides the major source of protein and a source of cash. The Trobriand economy also relies on selling wood carvings to tourists and remittances sent home by youth working abroad.
