This chapter describes the remote community in Madang Province: the Wisini Group of Villages. The place is located near the Biaru and the Wisini Rivers, within the Wau rural local-level government mandated region of Bulolo District. It is composed of four main villages of Wisini Ward—Kassangare, Tauroro, Wisini, and Ilabu—and a loose network of other villages that are scattered along the Ono, Waria, and Biaru Rivers. Since early 1992 these villages have begun to work together as a collective, driven in many parts by the Pariet mobilization project. The chapter also discusses the Omarakana and Kiriwina Island in Milne Bay Province.

Keywords:   Madang Province, Wisini Group of Villages, Pariet mobilization, Kassangare, Tauroro, Ilabu
