A recording of Fane Telena discussing the Huata (a havest ceremony) and other traditional rituals in traditional Sikaiana life before the conversion to Christianity. The recording was made by Bill Donner as part of ethnographic research in the Solomon Islands from 1980-1983. I think the other voices on the tape are Mantai her nephew and Teavaki who lived with her.
There is a break in the tape (about 30 minutes in) where I asked a question in which I confused two different ceremonies.
