The Culture

on Bougainville





The Mona festivals


Since 2009 the  Mona festival is celebrated in Buka - an island some  500 yards north of Bougainville. It is dedicated to the Monas. These are old traditional warrior canoes that were used in the past. The festival is the biggest and most colourful cultural event on Bougainville.
