Understanding Indigenous responses to sorcery accusation related violence: Peacebuilding by the Yuri People of Papua New Guinea

Witne D Bomai

Witne Dick Bomai explored Indigenous responses to sorcery accusation related violence (SARV) through peacebuilding by the Yuri people of Papua New Guinea (PNG). Witne integrated arts-based research, participatory action research and Indigenous research methods of semi structure interviews, kapori (local form of storytelling) and photovoice. The interface of these methods offers insights to locally relevant and sustainable practices of addressing SARV and conducting Indigenous social research in PNG and elsewhere. The findings add new perspectives to local and international conversations of SARV. An important outcome was the photovoice booklet, a resource to educate and sustain advocacy against SARV in PNG.
