Changes in Truk



30 minutes, B/W, Sound, 1979

        Part of the "Micronesian Transitions" videotape series from 1977 to 1983, this program discusses changes in the social fabric of life in Truk (Chuuk) in the former United States Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands.  Subjects covered are the prohibition of alcohol, the conflict between Iras Village and the government over the expansion of the airport runway, and the success of youth clubs in dealing with youth problems.

        This program is of non-broadcast television quality and generally only suitable for academic or research purposes.   It contains video glitches, image imperfections, and sound distortions which are not a product of the copying process but are due to technical limitations in the original edited recording.
