Children are born into societies that indigenous culture is inevitable. Now do they grow up with their cultural heritage?

    EVERY child in Papua New Guinea (PNG) is born into a family, tribe and province that has indigenous cultural heritage. They inevitably inherit a culture through their blood linage. But with Western influence of lifestyle with modern music, dance and other forms of entertainment today they are brought into, it puts the indigenous cultural heritage at stake. 

What is the Government doing to keep our cultural heritage alive through generations? Can education system be seen as an avenue for the children to learn about Melanesian Culture?
