This bilingual book recounts the memories of a reconciliation ceremony held on Erromango, one of the South Pacific islands comprising the Republic of Vanuatu. The impetus for the ceremony was the murderin 1839 of English Presbyterian missionary John Williams and a colleague.The reconciliation ceremony originated with an act of generosity whereby Williams' descendants offered the missionary's South Pacific memorabilia to UBC's Museum of Anthropology. The museum's Pacific curator, Carol Mayer, not only accepted the items but initiated the reconciliation ceremony and resultant book. The book both describes and visualizes the event and related missionary activity with 105 compelling coloured illustrations. The result is a powerful firsthand and interpretive narrative able to be employed to good effect to remediate both comparable wrongs and everyday festering grievances.

Carol Mayer is the Head of the Curatorial Department and responsible for the collections from the Pacific Islands at the University of British Columbia's Museum of Anthropology. Anna Naupa is Secretary of the Erromango Cultural Association. She has spend the past decade researching and documenting Wrromango's traditional knowledge and history, particularly in relation to the Ralifati area of Erromango, which includes Williams Bay.Vanessa Warri is a Project Assistant fo rthe Erromango Cultural Association and has made a significant contribution over many years to the awareness of traditional knowledge and use of Sye language among Erromango's youngest generation.
