Destructions that violated our collective rights and threatened our right to exist began with ignorance that denied the co-existence and equally undeniable rights of the Spirits to Be and to Function in accordance with the Laws of Nature  ...

We are nature means our environmental work is a life-saving work that we value as highly esteemed deed. It is not done out of passion or love for nature, but as the way we humans submit ourselves to the reality that we need and we aught to allow the laws of nature to reign in our lives, starting with respecting and protecting the rights of spirits to be and to function..

1 Tribe, 1 Storyline, 1 Map,  and 1 Law

We promote (1) storylines as the foundations for (2) social with geographical maps that become the foundations for writing Customary Laws: codified and legalized within modern nation-states.

We map society and culture within geographical areas based on storylines that map out the Spirit Hotspots. The Customary Laws or the Laws of the Indigenous Peoples are produced based on storylines as modern tool for sustainable living..

We produce Customary Law at the end of the project as it is binding for each Community and protects them from being destroyed as well as prevents them from destroying

At the same time, Customary Laws also prevents foreigners from destroying the values, norms and systems that tribal people inherited since time immemorial, that have proven valuable and workable in protecting life and nature.

3 Mandates of Melanesian Council of Elders for Conservation


We are communities of beings: (1) spirit beings, (2) matter, (3) land-, sky-, water-capes, (4) plants, (5) animals, and (6) human individuals and groups.

We focus on the "Spirit Hot Spots" and how we humans work with the hotspots as the basis and foundation for our conservation across Melanesia and beyond.


Restore and Document the Storylines of Melanesian families, clans and tribes according to the Laws of Nature that map out spirit hotspots:

* Explore and document stories of each clans, tribes and tribal groups,

* Weave the storylines into a larger connected storyline: the Melanesian Storyline.* 


We provide information on various projects across the Melanesian Archipelago, noted and presented by Council of Melanesian Conservation Elders from West Papua, Papua New Guinea, Bougainville, Solomon Islands, Fiji, Vanuatu and Kanaky.

The information is mainly presented on this website, however, we also elaborate in other related websites.

Spirit-Led Conservation means this is non-scientific, traditional way of conservation as commonly practiced by clans and tribes in Melanesia.

The Melanesian Way Conservation is Spirit-Based!

We advocate "Spirit-Led Conservation" as the Melanesian Way of talking about and doing conservation. The Melanesian Way of Conservation focuses on the source of life and concentrated on the identification and knowledge of the "spiritual hotspots" based on storyline.

This approach applies to all communities of beings. When human beings see plants, animals, matter and human beings being hosted in one particular landscape or geographical region, one should automatically realize that there is or there are some spiritual hotspots that originate, give, nurture, sustain and recover life around that require human awareness to protect and promote.

We promote "Spirit-Led Conservation" Across Melanesia: West Papua, Papua New Guinea, Bougainville, Solomon Islands, Fiji, Vanuatu and Kanaky.


We Are Committed To Connect the Storylines of Melanesian Clans and Ethnic Groups across Melanesian Archipelago as the Tool to Promote Organic Spirit-Led Conservation!

This website is the Melanesian Online "Haus Man, Haus Tambaran, Kunu, Mbelamu, Pilamo, Saliyap, Nakamal, ...." where all Melanesian elders, families, clans and tribes are welcome to meet, talk, tell, listen and discuss various Melanesian Storylines of the Past and Present and Melanesian dream for the future.

We Have Kept Melanesia as Green and Blue as They are Today and We are Ready to Share Our Wisdom with the World

Four Areas of Our Activities

Save Life

We demonstrate and promote the Melanesian Way or Actions of Safe Life or to Save Life.

We take affirmative actions to map, document and protect the nature in Melanesian Way, i.e, carry out conservation work based on storylines that map spirit hotspots.

Storylines of life and living help Melanesian peoples to relate to self and with each other as fellow beings and to balance mind, emotions and heart with the dance of the nature.  

Storylines are the blueprints of the spirit hot-spots that connect to everything as one.

Care for Life

We set up Birth, Living and Death hospitals to demonstrate and promote the Melanesian Way to care and/ or appreciate life.

The MELANESIAN WAY of caring life is by looking after, and nurturing the Social Building of the human community according to the storylines.

Our Men's House and Families' house cater as the central  points for laws and orders of life and living.. They are the routers of signals from all living beings in the universe. They capture, magnify, transmit, and respond to messages from all beings and all directions. 

Celebrate Life

We celebrate our being through story-telling, singing, dancing and worship.

At the same time, we protect our intellectual rights as wisdom of the indigenous Melanesians! 

The Melanesian Way to Celebrate Life is rituals and festivals, involving various human and non-human communities or beings.

We invite other humans and other communities of beings to inter-relate and inter-act with each other individually and in group.

Balance for Harmony

A balanced way of life facilitates Harmony to reign in life.
According to the Laws of Nature, 
BALANCE is the key to HARMONY, just the same as justice is the key to peace!

Harmony is perceiving and treating each other as equal members of our collective existence communities of beings.

Harmony is dancing in tunes and pulses of beings and life.

Harmony is breathing freely as communities of beings.

Harmony is surrendering our being into our collective existence.

Harmony is the ultimate destination of our being.

Four Pillars of Our Work

Spirits Pillar

Creator, Sustainer and Nurturer of all and everything.

Spirit, Soul and dwellers that live in humans and in all communities of beings.

Melanesian peoples grasp, breathe and surrender to the Laws of Nature sourced from the Pulses of the Spirits inside, above, around and beyond this life we are running.

Storylines Pillar

Storylines of life and living help Melanesian peoples to relate to self and with each other as fellow beings and to balance mind, emotions and heart with the dance of the nature.  

Storylines are the blueprints of the spirit hot-spots that connect to everything as one.

Spots Pillar

Spirits and Storylines have places (sports), scapes (land, sky, sea/water) that houses the existence and expression of all beings.

Men's House and Family House as well as Spirit House exist in Melanesia  as the SPOTS all all beings to be and to do according to their call, roles and duties.

Customary Laws Pillar

All other than human beings still submit to the Laws of Nature, however, human beings have broken many of the laws. Customary Laws bind humans belong to the Customary Areas to submit our humanity to our beingness.

The Codified Customary is binding to the individuals and groups within the Clan/ Tribe or Customary Areas. 

Storyline explains the spiritual thread that weaves life and living beings together as one family of beings, that we call Nature. Therefore, "Yes, We are NATURE!"

Yes We are Nature
