Abstract

[Extract] Annie's intriguing story adds a female dimension to the Melanesian indentured labourer's experience on the Herbert. The significance of having such a fulsome account of her life is underscored by the small number of Melanesian women who were recruited. Her story illustrates how one Melanesian woman living on the Herbert in the plantation era attempted to determine a life for herself and her children through accommodation of white cultural and economic practices.
