Manambu is a member of the Ndu language family. About 2,500 people speak Manambu In four villages In the East Sepik Province (Ambuntl district) along the Seplk River: Avatlp, renowned as the most traditional village and a sort of Jvlanambu "metropolis"; Malu, the place where the first contact with Europeans took place early In the twentieth century; Yambon, or Yuanab; and Yawabak. Not more than 200-400 Manambu speakers live in scattered expatriate communities In major cities of Papua New Guinea, Including Port Moresby, Wewak, Lae, Madang, Kokopo, and Mount Hagen. Because of the complex language contact situation, the Manambu language is considered to be endan­gered.
