String fibre skirt
In 1974 Waikato Museum acquired a selection of items, including this skirt, from Graham Jackson. Jackson was a New Zealand anthropologist who spent time living with and researching the Kopon and the Kalam people of the Lower Kaironk Valley in Papua New Guinea.
Jackson fieldnotes: Gos nag / koj nag = no literal meaning known other than 'skirt'. This is a string skirt, made and worn by women to cover their buttocks. It hangs in front from the waist down. Two are worn at a time.
