Jakub, you are talking about the part of New Guinea which was administered by Germany.

In Papua or British New Guinea the law was that the village people could not dress in white man’s clothes when they came into town.

It was the complete opposite in German New Guinea as the Christian missionaries made the women cover up their breasts and made them feel they were sinning.

I have lived most of my life in what was the German side. Maybe people who have lived in the Papuan side may like to comment.
