Old Ponape. Pohnpei Ni Mwehin Kawa.
Lawrence, Pensile, Comp.; And Others
This book presents English and Ponape versions of the stories, legends, and histories originally transcribed by anthropologists attached to the Thilenius South Sea Expedition of 1908-1910. The natives of the Marshall Islands in Micronesia who related these stories are identified, but the material is much older and represents the cultural heritage of the Ponapean nation which had been orally transmitted for centuries before. A new orthography is employed in describing the past wars, old gods, and building of ancient cities. Sample titles include The Origins of Ponape; Songs for the Paddle Dance; Story of the Great Gods; and The Coming of the Spanish Troops. A glossary of old Ponapean words is provided. (Author/KSM)
