Manus (Titan)

Manus is the largest of the Admiralty Islands off the northern coast of New Guinea. However, the name Manus is also an ethnonym given to the speakers of the Titan language, a specific group living on and around the southern coast of the island. To distinguish the Titan-speakers from other peoples of Manus, they are sometimes known as "Manus True". Manus religion, which the worship of spirits of deceased fathers by their sons, was studied in detail by Fortune (1935).
