Tanna, Vanuatu - While completing my PhD, I had the unique privilege to work with the residents of the villages of Lenakel and Isingel on the island of Tanna in Vanuatu. Vanuatu, a Melanesian island nation in the South Pacific, is one of the most remote, culturally and linguistically diverse, and understudied countries in the world. Vanuatu provides a unique opportunity to explore the development of cultural learning in communities with limited exposed to Western education and influence.
