Introduction / History

The Gwahatike people live on the coastlands and mountain foothills of the Madang Province of Papua New Guinea. They are subsistence farmers who live in rural villages. They do very little hunting; most of their diet is based on the foods they grow in their gardens. Their homes are made of bamboo with bamboo leaf roofs, which last between four and five years. Local leadership is provided by village elders.

There are still people who practice their traditional animistic religion. However, because of the influence of the church, they no longer practice cult rituals in public. The local churches are growing under the leadership of Gwahatike Christians. The Gwahatike are using the New Testament translation in Bible studies, evangelization in neighboring language groups and some church meetings.
