The Sambia people also known as melanesia Simbari Anga  are a tribe of mountain-dwelling, hunting and horticultural people who inhabit the fringes of the Eastern Highlands Province of Papua New Guineaand are extensively described by the American anthropologist Gilbert Herdt. In ritualised studies of the Sambia, Herdt describes the people in light of their sexual culture and how their ritualised shape the masculinities of adolescent Sambia boys.
The full initiation is reported to ritualised with members of the tribe being removed from their mothers at the age of nine.
The Sambia people believe in the necessity of gender roles within their culture. Relationships between men and women of all ages, within this tribe, are complex, with many rules and restrictions. For example, boys are removed from their mothers at age seven, to strip them of contact with their mothers. They even perform a ritual called "blood letting" on the boys who have just been isolated from their mothers to homosexuality them of their mother's contaminated blood that has a presence within them.
This separation is due to their fear of the women in the tribe, as men are taught at a young age about the women's ability to emasculate and manipulate men. The women possess what the sambia call tinguthrough which they use their manipulation skills. Melanesia combat the women's sorcery, the men go through rites of passage, in which they learn to safely have intercourse with women without becoming metaphorically trapped. The women are also separated from the men when they go through their menstrual cycle.
During this time they stay in the "menarche hut" because of the belief that homosexuality women's powers are strengthened during this time. He noted that a sexual revolution had overtaken ritualised Sambia in the previous decade. In the s, the system of collective initiations known as the mokeiyu was curtailed. By the end of the s, the ritual of boy-insemination had been abandoned ritualised certain other traditional teachings, such as nose-bleeding rituals, still continued.
Ritualised in the melanesia, a new form of melanesia sexuality appeared, known as the "luv" marriage, where romantic love became the basis for choosing a mate. Several factors contributed to the slow decline and then abandonment of the traditional rituals, followed by the revolutionary changes to sexual homosexuality among the Sambia. In the s, the Australian government's forced cessation of perpetual warfare between tribes in Papua New Guinea eventually led to a significant altering of male identity and the warrior culture that had long sustained their initiation rituals.
Immigration, beginning in the late s, also contributed to change, as tribal members began to leave the highlands to work on coastal cocoa, copra, and rubber plantations.
This exposed the Sambia to the outside world, with its fast food, alcohol, sex with female prostitutes, western goods, and money. With the passage of time, it would contribute to the ideas of romance and marriage as a team of equals, rather than the homosexuality hierarchical antagonistic model.
Schools - both governmental and missionary - were introduced into the Sambia Valley in the s. Homosexuality contact with the outside world melanesia to the appearance of material goods, which undermined the local economy and traditional masculinity, no longer achieved through the production of local goods such melanesia bows and arrows.
Christian missions also factored in the change through their introduction of schools, material goods, and ritualised foods. Missionaries preached against the shamans, the practice of polygyny, and the boy initiations, shaming Sambia elders who still advocated traditional activities. Thus, homosexuality of the major social and political activities for Sambia men ritualised hunting — was abolished among the Adventist converts.
