Carolinian Oral History. This collection contains approximately 24 hours of taped stories, chants, and songs collected on the island of Satawal in 1982.  This information, recounted in several dialects of the Carolinian language, relates to oral history dealing with voyages to and settlement in the Northern Mariana Islands. Listen to oral history tapes here. Here is a guide to the 24 CDs which make up this collection.  Verbatum transcriptions of each of these tapes are also available under Digital Document Collections page of this website.
