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. One of his sons briefly watched the proceedings. Lorenso Simeon discusses traditional fishing techniques. Of the 36 named types presented to him, he recognizes all but three. The 36 fishing techniques discussed in this interview are numbers 6 through 41 in a list contained in The Fishing Lore of Tobi. A video made the previous day (Lorenso Simeon: on canoes, Papua New Guinea, fishing, coconut syrup, handicrafts) covers the first five techniques included in that list. 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. A detailed description of this session is here at tb34-04266-sla-2014-05-16.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.
