Description:
In this two and a half minute long video, with ripped audio file, Margaret Pohu demonstrates how to get the fibre from a plant to make baskets. She also describes the next steps of wrapping it up and putting it inside a plastic bag in some water, then drying it out in the sun. This was recorded behind Jessica's house
Village name is Nausai. Margaret's mother, Mary Tael, was born in Papitalai. Margaret grew up in Naringel (just across the water from Papitalai), but her family belongs to Papitalai. She moved from Naringel to Papitalai, where she now lives, in the 80s. Her siblings include Jack, Massina, and Eddie. Her children are Becky and Piru. Becky has a son, Mailun Eduardo. Margaret's first language is Koro, but she also learnt Tok Pisin from when she was very small. Tok Pisin is her dominant language now, although she is still very fluent in Koro. She completed grade 6 in 1975.
