Description:This recording was made in Echang, in Koror at the house of Wayne Andrew on May 23, 2014. 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, Regina Andrew, Wayne’s mother. Until recently he was the Hatohobei State Historian, as part of a program under the 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 filmed this interview. Domiciano sings five different songs, of three different genres, as well as briefly talking about the conversion of Tobi to Catholicism. A fuller description and discussion of this conversation is included here at tb51-04226-daa-2014-05-23.pdf. Recorded: 2014-05-23.
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.
