Description:This session was recorded by Barbara W. Black at the summer house of the Belau National Museum in Koror, Palau where a Southwest Island outrigger canoe is on display. Nixon begins by telling who taught him all the techniques that he knows. He stresses the importance of feeding his family from the ocean and talks about teaching his son to fish when he is old enough. He explains why he likes a particular fishing technique. In response to a question, he talks about the kinds of net fishing he knows and the kinds of fish he can bring in with a net. He explains why he does not know how to sail a traditional canoe. The tape ends with a joking discussion of a possible trip to Tobi Island in the museum’s canoe. An expanded discussion of this session by Peter W. Black is included here at tb16-04088-nab-2014-06-02.pdf. The transcription and translation by Nixon’s daughter, Felicia Andrew, is available here at tb16-04098-nab-2014-06-02.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.
