Boigu Island, the most northerly inhabited of the Torres Strait Islands, lies just six kilometres off Papua New Guinea. Its vegetation is limited mainly to mangroves and Boigu people are confined to the village of Koedal Boepur -- an area of high ground on the northern coast. The elders of this small island community have taken the initiative in writing down their own history and culture to ensure that there is a permanent record. In doing so, they have also recorded part of the story of all of the Torres Strait. However, their book Boigu, speaks to all people everywhere. In it you will find stories of brave warriors and traditional customs, of love and hope, of everyday experiences and practices, of business enterprises and industrial disputes, of friendships and religious influences. It is a lively collection of writings from the past and the present.
