Ethnobotany cultural ceremony
The spring 2011 ethnbotany class visited Welianter "Oaulik" Samuel in Dien, Kitti to enact the Pohnpeian sakau ceremony.
Cleaning the sakau.
Mallone as oarir serves "Nahnken" Lewis.
Hertin prepares to serve Ceasar.
For the after session, Mallone took over on wengweng.
Our host, Oaulik, who made the participatory experience possible.
This event always functions as a cap stone event that brings to a functional close the term in ethnobotany with a plant that is really at the very center, the heart and soul, of a culture.
