Description:In this video recording, the speaker Mark Mesapo is describing the methods to catch honey-eater birds (Myzomela cardinalis). Traditionally, the honey-eater was caught to provide the red colour for red-feather money. The red-feather money, which is rarely produced in Santa Cruz (and in the Nea area), was at the base of the trading system. Red-feather valuables, referred to as töwa in the language, are coils that resemble long belts, each of them containing around fifty thousand feathers.
Valentina Alfarano is the principal investigator of this project.
