Koro is an Oceanic (Austronesian) language spoken by several hundred people on Manus and Los Negros islands, approximately 200 miles off the north coast of the Papua New Guinea mainland. This documentation consists primarily of recorded narratives and conversations in the Papitalai dialect, spoken in Papitalai, Riu Riu, and Naringel villages.
Village name is HiKatip. Rose's parents are Pauline Kewin, from Bipi, and Laurence Kewin. Laurence was a police officer. Rose was born in Moresby, and she has moved around a lot. She went to school in Naringel. When they came to Papitalai she was a young child. She and her mother did not speak Koro very well. They spoke mostly pidgin. Rose moved to Goroka to do grade 7, and she moved back and forth between Lae, Goroka, Moresby and Papitalai. She had many different jobs in these different locations. She married James Pokasuwi from Powat and they moved to Papitalai around 1992. They also lived in Manila, where he was ambassador. She married Rudy Wild, from Switzerland, in Goroka.
