Material culture: what was traditionally worn

If we taught in the clothing that Pohnpeians wore in the past, this would be a common site on campus. In SC/SS 115 Ethnobotany, in part to drive home the extent of the change and loss of Micronesian material culture, I come to one class dressed in a Pohnpeian koahl. This always attracts a lot of attention, and that is the point. Other facets of plant culture do not attract the attention that wearing a koahl attracts. In their dress, most of our students resemble college students elsewhere.
