The beginning of accelerated decolonization in the British Solomon Islands protectorate. A failed attempt to use a single governing council combining executive and legislative functions between 1970 and 1974 was followed by conventional legislative and executive councils, with a gradual move towards internal self-government, as the governor appointed Solomon Islanders as ministers. Discusses the roles of pioneer nationalist leaders, including New Zealand-educated Solomon Mamaloni and Peter Kenilorea. Problems of citizenship and land ownership, and the need for continuing financial support dominated the constitutional conference that preceded independence in 1978.

Keywords:   Solomon Islands, Solomon Mamaloni, Peter Kenilorea, Maasina Ruru, governing council, internal self-government, citizenship, land
