There is a village on the island of Tanna in Vanuatu, where the people believe Prince
Philip of the UK is a god! Otherwise known as the ‘Cargo Cult’, the religion of John
Frum took hold on the island in the nineteen-thirties when Americans began to set
up military bases.
The military introduced themselves as "John from America," and only the sounds of
the first words were remembered. Week after week, the islanders saw loads of cargo
dropped from the sky by airplanes. Only being aware of natural products like shells
and coconuts, the islanders assumed that the bounty, including boxes of cheese, bottles
of whisky, jars of jam and cans of beef, could not possibly be man-made and, therefore,
must be gifts from god.
The Tannese wanted their share of the cargo too so they emulated the Americans by
building ‘radiomasts’, ‘airstrips’, ‘sentry boxes’ and performing rituals such as
marching in formation with ‘rifles’.
In the years since the
Americans left, John Frum’s
worshippers have beseeched
him to return. When Queen
Elizabeth II arrived in the
Royal Yacht and they saw
the tall Prince Philip dressed
in a white uniform, they assumed they had succeeded!
