South Seas 1919
In April they left San Francisco for the New Hebrides. Returning to Vao they organized an expedition and set sail for Tenmarou Bay on the island of Malekula with the intention of again filming the Big Nambas. After a successful visit, Martin and Osa left Chief Nagapate and his part of Malakula to photograph and film other tribes of the island.
Off the south coast of Malekula they visited the island of Tomman where the heads of children were elongated through the use of tight bindings. From Tomman they visited the island of Espiritu Santo before returning to Sydney, Austraila, with 25,000 feet of film and 1,000 phtographs.Photo Gallery Return to Research
