Captain Steward Kadiko

Tribe’s historical K98,000 bride price payment

The tribe recently took part in a bride price ceremony at Gavuone village in the Abau district of Central Province, paying for Captain Steward Kadiko’s wife.

After months of planning and preparation, Captain Kadiko has decided to finally pay bride price for his wife as a sign of chieftaincy in his tribe.

Raised in a Nakanai culture, Capt Kadiko always kept his traditional values close to heart.

Last Thursday, he flew in 70 of his tribesmen from Hoskins in West New Britain to witness the occasion.
