This chapter discusses the hinterland communities in Papua New Guinea such as the Tokain Group of Villages in Madang Province and the Inuma and Alepa Villages in Central Province. The community in the Tokain group of villages brings together the residents of eight villages, with each village a distinct unit of identification, itself consisting of several clans. Within each village, family ties form the foundation of households, with groups of households bringing together entire extended families. Meanwhile, the sense of community in Inuma is strongly defined by the fact that the village consists of just one clan. Inuma villagers still consider themselves part of Alepa, and their own village is known as the “small village” in relation to the big one.
