Anthropologist Bruce Biggs collects linguistic information in conversation with children of Yaramanda Village in the Western Highlands of Papua New Guinea, around 1960. Biggs and fellow University of Auckland anthropologist Ralph Bulmer worked with the Kyaka-Enga-speaking people of Yaramanda and the Kalam-speaking people of Schrader Range. Biggs, of Ngāti Maniapoto descent, went on to carry out and supervise major linguistic studies of Māori and other Polynesian languages.
