We heard word for Theresa Arek from Pacific Spices our Heritable Innovation Trust contact in Papua New Guinea. She is currently in Bali attending an ICCO South East Asia and Pacific Regional council meeting. Upon her return to Papua New Guinea, she will stop in New Ireland and finalize all of the details for the 2011 internship.
We hope that the plan for the 2011 internship will include the selection of a tree which the interns will then take through the ritualistic process of building a canoe.
