1 Tribe, 1 Storyline, 1 Map, and 1 Law
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
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
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.
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.
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.
Four Pillars of Our Work
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.
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!"
