The National Kenu & Kundu Festival (NKKF) was established in 2003 by the late John Kaniku - now in its 17th year the Festival features and showcases the unique culture of the different traditional societies, canoes, and dances currently in existence in Milne Bay and Papua New Guinea.
The NKKF shows to the world, our authentic way of life that was defined and established by our ancestors; it is the link that holds together, and bridges the gap between the ancient, traditional, sacred paths and routes undertaken by our ancestors and the contemporary culture in existence today. It is a spectacular event that showcases many of the fascinating cultures of Milne Bay including other participating provinces in Papua New Guinea.
Milne Bay is known for its peaceful and friendly people and is an upcoming model for eco-tourism in Papua New Guinea. The province has over 600 islands and is also known for its wide range of traditional canoes which play a significant role in Milne Bay culture.
