This bulletin includes three brief papers on small-scale entrepreneurial activity among Papuan people.The first presents data on four entrepreneurs among the Orokaiva of the Northern District of Papua.Three of the four were the only entrepreneurs who established enterprises on that scale based on cash-cropping without government help.The fourth was a settler on government land with a government loan.The second paper provides some information on twelve Orokaiva who conceived of themselves mainly as retail traders(even those in the sample whose stores were closed hoped to resume trading and to derive their main income from it). The third paper analyses data collected between April and July 1964 on the system of job contracting in Port Moresby and on all Papuan subcontractors who could be contacted in June and July of that year.
