PNG 'sorry' for cannibal killings
The descendants of cannibals in Papua New Guinea, who killed and ate four Fijian missionaries in 1878, have said sorry for their forefathers' actions.
They held a ceremony of reconciliation, attended by thousands, in the East New Britain province where the four died.
The missionaries were part of a group of Methodist ministers and teachers who arrived in 1875 to spread Christianity.
Their murder three years later, by the Tolai tribespeople on the Gazelle Peninsula, sparked angry reprisals.
The head of the mission, English pastor George Brown, avenged the killings by taking part in an expedition that resulted in the deaths of a number of tribespeople and the torching of several villages.
Candles were lit in remembrance of the four killed missionaries as thousands attended the ceremony in East New Britain.
Fiji's High Commissioner in PNG, Ratu Isoa Tikoca, accepted the apologies on behalf of the descendants.
"We at this juncture are deeply touched and wish you the greatest joy of forgiveness as we finally end this record disagreement," he said.
PNG's Governor-General Sir Paulias Matane praised the early missionaries for making the country Christian - and called for more people to follow its guiding principles.
"I wish many people could follow the 10 commandments, but they still steal today and commit adultery," he said.
"There is a big increase in HIV/Aids cases in the country because of adultery, despite knowing its wrong."
Fijian spokesman Sir Tua Icedavovo said today. This was a bad thing eating their four fathers.
After all, eating white missionaries was all the go, but eating black missionaries was just not cricket. It was possibly a case of the locals getting confused with the Communion ritual, and eating the missionaries instead. "This just won't do." said Mr Icedavovo.
Mr Icedavovo reiterated, that whilst not wanting to bring up the past. He hoped they all suffered from terminal indigestion. He will shortly be bringing out a guide, on how to boil Friars, and how to fry old-boilers.
You are an idiot, all you posting through pngscape are a disgrace, and unsubstantiative. Every in this world isn't funny. What you have posted above, is a discriptive summary of yourself. You can't distinguish between black and white, which would be a walk over the park for a 1 year child. Secondly your brain is as thick and hard as a test cricket ball. Thirdly, there is nothing ritual about such people like you .... spactic. Fourthly, you are terminally ill, brainless with nothing contructive to say and do in you in your live.
