Description:
In this session we see how pandanus leaves are treated for all sorts of plaiting (mats, baskets, hats etc.). The whole process of preparing, i.e. drying and whitening the pandanus leaves is shown and explained in detail. It is not clear whether the use of pandanus leaves for plaiting traditionally belongs to the Marquesan material culture or whether it has been copied from other islands in the last decades. Linton (1923: 381) claims that pandanus leaves are not traditionally used in the Marquesan material culture.
