Vanuatu traditional stories - ol kastom stori blong Vanuatu

For those of you interested in reading traditional stories from Vanuatu, you can find some published on the Vanuatu Daily Post website. These stories are supplied by the Vanuatu Cultural Centre and most likely from their fieldworkers. Vanuatu people have some great traditional stories. Some stories are similar across the country, but many are central to a language and culture. Here is a link to the Vanuatu Daily Post where you might be able to read some for yourself. Most likely, they will be written in Bislama, which is the national language of Vanuatu.
(The illustration is from an Ambrym tale drawn by David Tovovor for a vernacular literacy workshop in 2003.)
