Description:This recording was made in Echang, in Koror at the house of Wayne Andrew. At the time of this interview, Domiciano suffered from a bad leg and was waiting to be sent to Taiwan for surgery. He was bed-bound and occupying a room in his nephew Wayne’s house, being cared for by the women of that house, especially his sister, Wayne’s mother. Until recently he was the Hatohobei State Historian, as part of a program under the Palau national government’s Bureau of Arts and Culture. He is widely recognized as knowledgeable about the past; some consider him the ought-to-be chief of the island. Peter W. Black interviewed him. This interview covered Domiciano’s illness and his position as the official State Historian for Hatohobei Island. It ends with a brief discussion of a story that he plans on telling later and another that he places in the remote past. A more detailed description and discussion of this session is included here at tb01-04053-daa-2014-05-18.pdf. A photograph of Domiciano Andrew is included here at tb01-03428-daa-2014-05-18.jpg.
Documenting Ramari Hatohobei (literally the Tobian language of Tobi), a severely endangered Micronesian language. Tobi is one of the Southwest Islands of the Republic of Palau, a Micronesian nation in the western Pacific. Severely endangered, Tobian is currently spoken by approximately 150 people. Tobian and the dialects of Sonsorol, Merir, and Pulo Anna, the other three Southwest Islands, are closely related to the languages spoken in the outer islands of Yap and Chuuk.
