John Frum, 2017

In 2017 The John Frum Cargo Cult changed in its focus somewhat, becoming less about future material expectations and more about a return to traditional governance, as different to, but possibly working with, the democratic government. In this sense, it is returning to its anti-colonial roots, but with new allies.
