Elder William Labu

​Indigenous language almost extinct

This is true for the Makolkol, a group of people located towards the Nakanai Ranges between Open Bay, Pomio and West New Britain.

The original Makolkol are Baining people, the indigenous inhabitants of East New Britain, However, they were thought to be extinct and thus, were never included as part of the Baining tribe.

Meet William Labu, an elder of the Makolkol and one of five pure blood, original Makolkol people.
