Abstract / Summary
Date: 16.7.18. Place: Omarakana (Kiriwina). Informant: Tokulubakiki. Three typed pages, apparently retyped field notes, contain descriptions of aspects of the village of Omarakana. Included is discussion of sacred places and types of houses. The information is written mostly in English with some terms in indigenous text -- generally nouns, underlined. The first page is nearly identical to that of an earlier document, but this document contains a description and census of the village and lacks any handwritten annotation.
