Banaban Raobeia (Ken) Sigrah is interviewed by Prof. Grant McCall advising prospective students in the 2006 UNSW Anthropology Fieldwork course about Banaban Culture and Customs and how to behave when they visit his island.


He offers advice on common phrases, polite behaviour, and expected confusions that the students might encounter during their stay.


The video features also footage of Rabi Island itself and the activities of the people who live there.


The people of Rabi Island come from the central Pacific island of Banaba and were relocated from their original home to this island in the Fiji archipelago in 1946.
