The five category Goroka bilum pieces have distinct names in local dialects of societies they represent. The pieces occupy the cultural spaces of pig, baby, garden, bilum wear and sacred bilums serving different purposes. Much of Goroka bilum tradition is well maintained and many of traditional bilums are preserved. The common features of colors, designs and patterns need correct differentiation between other Highlands region traditional societies for ownership because there many similarities that ownership needs to be defined. Few pieces of pig, baby and garden bilums are lost and need to be revived and preserved.
