Abstract:

They are the last generation to have experienced (as children) traditional
life before contact with European cultures in the early 1950s, and the
first generation to experience the cultural changes brought about by that
contact---these are "the in-between people". As parents, they want their
children to experience the best of both the high technology world of today,
and the language and culture of their traditional world.

The In-Between People studies how the Kaugel-speaking people of Papua New
Guinea approach the tension that results from the intersection of the old
and new cultures. Specifically, the author focuses on Kaugel pre-primary
bilingual education, a nonformal mother-tongue education program whose
purpose is to increase the children's success in formal English education
and also to increase their appreciation of and participation in their
ethnic language and culture. He approaches his work with three purposes in
mind: understanding how the Kaugel pre-primary program has been maintained
and expanded; understanding Kaugel parents' attitude toward their
children's education; and describing how community members resolve the
tension between maintaining their mother tongue and succeeding in
English-speaking schools.
