Description:Peter W. Black made this video in front of Lorenso Simeon’s house, in Eang, Koror, Palau. The area was quite noisy with a good deal of foot traffic in the neighborhood. The five fishing techniques discussed in this interview are numbers one through five in a list contained in the Fishing Lore of Tobi. A video made the next day (Lorenso Simeon: fishing techniques) covers the remaining fishing techniques in that paper. The Fishing Lore of Tobi Island (Peter W. Black 1968, 2005), http://www.friendsoftobi.org/tobithings/fishing/fishinglore/fishingloreoftobiisland.htm. Fishing Methods of Tobi, http://www.friendsoftobi.org/tobithings/fishing/fishinglore/fishingmethods.htm. Lorenso Simeon discusses several topics in partial response to questions put to him. A more detailed description and discussion of this session by Peter W. Black is included here at tb32-04182-sla-2014-05-14.pdf.
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.
