Valued coconuts: Hear our voices

Valued Coconuts

This symposium cum workshop focuses on six pre-circulated papers. They address different Pacific sites in regard to the history of a range of Indigenous interactions with coconuts in everyday life as well as a commodity. In addition to considering the variety of Indigenous voices, most papers also examine interactions of colonial agents—administrators, traders, planters, and mission organisations—with this commodity in the form of coconut oil or copra. There are to be three assigned commentators. All are welcome to attend and contribute to the discussions where appropriate.
