Nagula

Ni-Vanuatu, meaning ‘of Vanuatu’, is the collective name for the mostly Melanesian people that make up 95 per cent of Vanuatu’s population, a lthough their customs differ widely from island to island. The Nagula community living in the south of Tanna island are also Ni-Vanuatu. 

The banyan tree has the function of a nakamal, a social meeting place.

The Nagula are perhaps best known for their long grass skirts and koteka penis gourds. Tanna is also the location of Mount Yasur, the highly active volcano that poses a constant, rumbling threat to local communities.
