Abemama Island Profile
- Last Updated on Wednesday, 13 February 2013 22:17
Abemama (pronounced Apamama) has been a home to Robert Louise Stevenson and is also known by many as the island where the Declaration of a British Protectorate was made by Captain Davis of ‘Royalist’ on 27th May 1892. In Abemama, you still can find physical evidence of American and Japanese WWII relics, cultural shrines and sites/monuments relating to their traditional spirits and famous King Binoka. History of King Binoka and his close allies, the early foreign traders, can still be heard through oratory that was passed from one generation to another and written in some history books of Kiribati.
