  • Micronesian Transitions Series




    18 minutes, B/W, Sound, 1979

            Part of the "Micronesian Transitions" videotape series from 1977 to 1983, this program presents festive dances at Mwan Village on Moen Island, Truk (Chuuk) which were performed in celebration of the inauguration of Erhart Aten, the first governor-elect.  The wide range of dance styles at this mwich or "meeting" exhibits the influence that many countries and islands have had on Trukese culture, including Spain, Germany, Japan, the United States, Samoa, and Ponape (Pohnpei).

            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.


    Producer:  Xavier High School, Truk.  Director:  Eric Metzgar, Instructor.  Senior Town Study Project students:  Nickson Bossy, John S. Deleon, Ohner Jim, Kris Johnson, and Jacinta Rickat.
