Minge, a village situated about 14 miles north-east of Menyamya District, Morobe Province, Papua New Guinea. It lies between two mountains and strives in the savanna grassland. With scattered huts and semi- permanent houses along the Isiwe river up to Ekqeinge village where legends and songs were chanted during the tribal wars. Reminds me of the time I heard chants and stories of the recent tribal wars when the missionaries and patrol officers came. It was here I learned about the last time when people killed humans and ate them. My history tells me of my forefathers.

“Your grand father was a stranger here but his enemies were at peace with him. He led his enemies to war against their enemies and in the cause lost his beloved brother-in-law and a son”. – Yeyaku L. Maeynga Kawo, 1993
