So far I have not referred to a Negrito element in the Ethnology of New Guinea.
From time to time we have heard rumours of pygmy people, and German travellers have recorded very short individuals in Kaiser Wilhelm’s Land; but it was not till the expedition to Netherlands New Guinea of the British Ornithological Union of 1910–11 that a definite pygmy race was demonstrated.
A lawyer must also necessarily have a wide knowledge of human nature and an appreciation of varied ways of thought and action. Seligmann, in his valuable paper “A Classification of the Natives of British New Guinea” (Journ. Williamson so frequently refers, and in which this classification is maintained, and these two groups together with the Papuans, are termed Papuasians.
It was with such an equipment and fortified by extensive reading in Ethnology, that Mr. Proof of his powers of observation will be found in the excellent descriptions of objects of material culture with which he has presented us. The Motu stock of the Western Papuo-Melanesians have extended their dispersal as far as the Mekeo district, where they came into contact with other peoples.
The Project Gutenberg EBook of The Mafulu, by Robert W. Haddon It is a great pleasure to me to introduce Mr.
Williamson This e Book is for the use of anyone anywhere at no cost and with almost no restrictions whatsoever. Williamson’s book to the notice of ethnologists and the general public, as I am convinced that it will be read with interest and profit.
Speaking very broadly, it is generally admitted that the bulk of the population belongs to the Papuan race, a dark-skinned, woolly-haired people who have also spread over western Oceania; but, to a greater or less extent, New Guinea has been subject to cultural and racial influences from all sides, except from Australia, where the movement has been the other way. C., “A Study of the Languages of Torres Straits,” Proc. I doubt if the time is ripe for a definite answer to any of these questions.
I now turn to some of the scientific aspects of his book. Williamson especially set before himself the work of investigating some tribes in the mountainous hinterland of the Mekeo district. Landtman is at present investigating the natives of the delta of the Fly river and Daudai. It has been shown that the true Papuans are a narrow-headed people, but there are some puzzling exceptions, the explanation of which is not yet ascertained.
This was a most happy selection, though no one could have foreseen the especial interest of these people. The natives of the Torres Straits islands have also been studied as fully as is possible. 15), in which he adhered to our former discrimination of two linguistic stocks and added a third type of language composed of a mixture of the other two, for which he proposed the name Melano-Papuan. Ray, occur in the Trobriands, Woodlarks and the Louisiades, and similar languages are found in the northern Solomon Islands. The Papuo-Melanesians contain a somewhat broad-headed element, and there is a slightly broad-headed population in the central range of the south-east peninsula, the extent of which has not yet been determined.
Thus the East Indian archipelago has directly affected parts of Netherlands New Guinea, and its influence is to be traced to a variable degree in localities in the Bismarck archipelago, German New Guinea (Kaiser Wilhelm’s Land), Western Oceania, and British New Guinea or Papua, as it is termed officially. Furthermore, we have yet to assign to their original sources the differences in culture which characterise various groups of people in New Guinea.
The south-eastern peninsula of New Guinea—or at all events the coastal regions—has been largely affected by immigrants, who were themselves a mixed people, and who came later at various times. Something has been done in this direction, but much more has yet to be learnt.
