Today's date is Sunday, September 26, 2021
Berndt Museum Film Night : Trobriand Cricket: An Ingenious Response to Colonialism (1976, 51 minutes, PG) Other events...
The film demonstrates how villagers living in the Trobriand Islands, off the coast of Papua New Guinea, transformed the game of cricket into their own form of ritual and fun. Methodist missionaries introduced cricket to the Trobriand Islands in 1903, the residents then altered the game to represent their own culture. Through the creation of their own version of the sport, the Trobriand Islanders did not lose sight of the competitive nature of cricket – they just extended the game to include dancing, chanting, ritual warfare and feasting!

Come along and see how the Trobriand Islanders changed a game that we all thought we knew so well.
