Kastom Stories of Vanuatu

Vanuatu people have some great traditional stories. Some stories are similar across the country, but many are central to a language and culture. Our Library has built up almost 200 collections of Custom stories from the different islands in Vanuatu.

Drop into the National Library any weekday from 9.00 am – 12.00 am or 1.00 pm - 4.00 pm to be able to read some for yourself. Most of the stories especially the Nabanga Pikinini are written in English, French and Bislama which is the national language of Vanuatu while others are in local languages and many more.

Visit the Library any time and let the friendly staff help you browse through the catalogue for your favourite Kastom stories.
Enjoy and keep in touch for more updates.
