“The chapel has decided to return to Russia””Local residents have been warned that it was going to Maclay Fourth”
“Maclay they remember and love, for the North-Eastern part of New Guinea it is almost a national hero. It should be used”, – said the newspaper VIEW, descendant of the legendary Russian traveller, speaking of the purpose of a new expedition to the Papuans is a unique for the Russian science and public diplomacy.
Nikolai Miklukho-Maclay went down in history not only as an ethnographer and traveler, pioneer, once proposed to establish a Russian protectorate over North-East New Guinea, but also as a fighter against racism. Being a biologist and an anthropologist, he regarded humanity as a whole and categorically denied the then popular in academic circles the theory of “transitional status” of blacks between APE and human and biological determinism cultural inequality of the races. Including why UNESCO declared Maclay citizen of the world.
The scientist also rejected the slave trade and colonialist practices, however, once the idea of the Russian protectorate and independent “Papuan Republic” by Miklukho-Maclay led failed, “Maclay Coast” still became a German colony.
Monday, September 11, to “the Shores of Maklay” in Papua New Guinea starts a new Russian research expedition. It is headed by a descendant of the researcher and his full namesake – Nikolai Nikolaevich Miklukho-Maklai. For the first time in recent history, scientists have to study the life of Papuans, once dedicated to the legendary Russian researcher of his own cargo cult, as well as to establish cultural and tourism ties with Papua New Guinea.
“After traveling my ancestor in Papua New Guinea in 1871 and 1876 was still the Soviet expedition to these places in 1971 and 1975. Since really 40 years on “Maclay Coast” no foot of our scientists,” said Maclay the newspaper VIEW.
“The citizen of Oceania to 30 years experiencing six accidents”
OPINION: What was the most difficult in the preparation of the expedition?
Nikolai Miklukho-Maclay: Establishing contacts with Papua New Guinea. Initially, we wanted not just to get to the jungle, but to establish cooperation and cultural exchange with local universities and other venues. And this requires arrangements with the authorities. All this was achieved thanks to our now good friend sir Peter Barter. It’s Australian, which is already more than 40 years living in Papua New Guinea, was previously a member of the Parliament of this country. Sir Peter is already 77 years old, and for many years it helps the preservation of the heritage of Papuans, and to the memory of my ancestor.

In 2014, together with Russian Valery Surinam he participated in the restoration of the memorial, delivered to the Soviet sailors in the 1970-ies in place of the hut where he lived Maclay. Personally with sir Peter, we still have never met, but over the last few months, sent each other several emails a day.
OPINION: How dangerous do you see the future journey? It will not work if in some point of the jungle of the Papuan cannibal, do not spoil the overall holiday?
N. M: Eat whether Maclay? Probably not. Anyway, I would like to hope.
About security of local residents have been warned that it was going to Maclay. Maclay the Fourth, as they say, because I am the fourth generation from the world renowned scientist. They retain the memory of the first three visits, waiting for the next. I think that offense they have no one will. No military, police, extra chaperones will not, also weapons we have at not will.
OPINION: what about natural hazards? Did you vaccinations before departure there?
N. M: Hypothetically, of course, not the safest place on the planet. According to statistics, the average resident of Oceania to 30 years experiencing six accidents. Tsunamis, floods, earthquakes, disease. We wouldn’t dream of that. To end, we can’t anticipate all that awaits us there. But before we know we are protected. Made in Russia tetanus shot. From possible problems with malaria, we will defend the special mesh, closed clothes, we will try not to walk through the jungle at night and so on.
OPINION: Where will you live?
N. M: Most of the time, in addition to the official events (meetings with different leaders of Papua New Guinea, speeches at local universities), we will live directly in the village of Papuans under the name of Bong-GU on “the Shores of Maklay”, where nearly 150 years ago settled my ancestor. Local residents have agreed to let us in. We will spend the night in their huts. We brought sleeping bags and mosquito nets, I think that will be enough.
Although, as I said, we don’t know what awaits us. The difference of this trip from most of the tourist that we try out on a completely new route.
“The pig is the most precious thing in life for Papuans”
OPINION: I remember the first Papuans of Maclay?
N. M.: “the Shores of Maklay” (unofficial name) or Paradise beach, as we now call him, remember him very well. From generation to generation, passed the legend of the first appearance of the white man to play performances on this subject, to arrange holidays.
This year is planned to hold a ceremony of exchange of gifts between me and descendant of the first local friend Maclay, Sr., whose name was TUI. I don’t know what will give me the descendant of Arborvitae, but I’m going to bring him a pig, which he could then share with other villagers, as well as a small camping generator and some clothes. I think “gifts” in the usual sense, that is, beads and boxes, – this is the last century and even before that.
OPINION: why a pig?
N. M: Oh… the Pig is the most precious thing in life for Papuans. They even feed the little piglets of the human female breast milk.
In Soviet times, one of the leaders of Papua New Guinea came on a visit to Moscow, spent a whole day with a tour of our capital. But when asked what he liked the most, he replied: “Such a pig, I have never seen.” It turned out that on VDNH, on one of the exhibitions showed him the fatted pigs, grown in the Soviet Union. And this impression for him outweighed everything else.
As for modern Papua New Guinea, one pig there is 100 thousand rubles in terms of our modern money. For the locals it is generally a fortune. By the way, the money to buy pigs in Papua New Guinea (do not take her from Moscow) we have not yet found, all spent on the training trip, but will definitely require funds.
OPINION: are There any places where you go, some kind of civilization?
Maclay with Papuan Ahmad (photo: public domain)
N. M: Look. Papua New Guinea is a unique country. In the capital Port Moresby, where we’ll be located, for example, a luxury five-star Grand Papua hotel. It in a few years will host the biggest summit of OPEC – the Organization of countries – exporters of oil.
On the other hand, if you fly on the plane about an hour before the “Maclay Coast”, you are in fact in the primitive society. Yes, someone out there is wearing European clothes, some even have a cell phone. But for now it is not a mass phenomenon, a regular relationship is very difficult to catch. However, thanks to satellite technology, September 20, we will hold an unprecedented teleconference from the village of Bong-GU, where there is no communication with St. Petersburg.
“I had to get into debt”
OPINION: How many people in your expedition, who are these people?
N. M.: the four of Us flying. From Russia we have to fly to Sydney. Get to Port Moresby. From there we fly to the city of Madang and Madang on the boats reach “the shores of Maklay”. Our team: Arina Lebedeva from the Cabinet of curiosities, Igor Chinnov from the Institute of Ethnology and anthropology named Miklukho-Maklay, photographer and Director of documentary (about the journey we will shoot a documentary film) Dmitry Sharomov me.
Also already in place, we meet Stepan Cargill – probably the only Russian living on the island of Papua, he will be our guide and translator. Why only five? The boat on which we will cross in to “the Shores of Maklay”, does not fit more than five people.
OPINION: the expedition program is an interesting point – preparation of the ethnical Park “Russian discoverer of New Guinea” in the villages of Bong and Gorundu and construction of an analogue of the hut Maclay. Tell me about it.
N. M: Project has already been prepared. The case for small – to find a sponsor. Then you have to understand the timing of its implementation. Build all of that for their money now, and could already referred to sir Peter Barter. But I would like to be a part of the Russian business. If funding is available to build a hotel and some cabins for fun and relaxation with the everyday life of the Papuans for a few months. Definitely one of the main goals of our expedition, besides the scientific (comparison of life here with notes Maclay 150 years ago) – the return of memory about the Russians.
In the future we want to do, “Maclay Coast” one of the most popular exotic tourist locations on the world map. Today Russian tourists in this country are almost there. Even a visa is very difficult to do.
OPINION: How much is your expedition? Who is funding it? Did you get any help the Russian government?
N. M.: the Expedition is financed by private funds, mostly my own, and with the assistance of a number of companies. Help is not only money. For example, one of the sponsors provided us with high quality equipment worth about one million rubles for the filming of the documentary.
The total budget of the expedition is about 4.5 million rubles. Of course, I had to go into debt to take Bank loans, but I think it’s worth it.
As for the state, direct assistance was not. But at the stage when the expedition was already prepared, I put on her fame and our foreign Ministry and other authorities. In General, they follow our adventures and help information. I also sent an invitation to our meeting with the leadership of Papua New Guinea to the Russian Ambassador in Indonesia, which also represents the interests of the Russian Federation and Papua New Guinea.
Establishing a good “neighborly” relations between the countries are also listed among the goals of our journey. At some point, with the collapse of the Soviet Union, we completely lost contact with Papua New Guinea. But there’s Maclay is remembered and loved for the North-Eastern part of the island it is almost a national hero. And it should be used.
