Death roots: Musings of a Pacific island native

Death is significant in, because it signifies, the lives of the natives of Oceania, and consequently of the land-/sea-scape of Oceania. Death is the mana that frees, welcomes, homes, nudges, shuttles, sanctifies and roots us where we are, at our home islands and in diaspora.
