Erromango Island Vanuatu

Erromango is a forested island in Vanuatu with a small population that lives in villages along the coast. Once named Martyrs Island when many missionaries met violent deaths there amongst hostile cannibals, and later named Sandalwood Island because of the abundance of the soft wood. Today the people are anything but hostile, sandalwood is scarce and the land is lush.
