Gawa Island is located midway between the Trobriand and Woodlark Island groups off the southeast coast of mainland Papua New Guinea. It is a raised coral atoll featuring a high plateau atop steep cliffs. Kweupa village lies on the plateau where villagers may perform traditional dances in their central square. Gawa is tied culturally and commercially to the Trobriands and Woodlarks. The Gawans send their soulava (necklaces) to the Trobriands and receive mwali (armbands) from the Woodlarks as part of the Kula Ring of reciprocal gift exchange.
