The Huli tribe is one of the largest among 950 tribes of Papua New Guinea. They
live in one of the most remote parts of the island and saw the first Whites,
Methodist missionaries, arrive in 1955. Since then, these missionaries have had to
compete with other hundred churches to convert the most Papuans as possible. If
women could see baptism as a way of enjoying a new recognition, the same was
not true for men. For them, baptism meant giving up polygamy, tribal warfare and
most of their traditions.
