Summary Wogeo Island is well known to anthropologists of Papua New Guinea. Based on substantial fieldwork, the author builds on and expands previous research by showing how Wogeos establish and maintain social relationships and identities connected to place and movement in the physical landscape. This innovative study demonstrates how Wogeo world views and social organization can be described in relation to terms of movements, flows, and placements in the landscape while, in turn, the landscape is constituted and made meaningful through people's activities and buildings. The author not only addresses.
