Stories from the Marshall Islands: Bwebwenato Jan Aelon Kein
- About the Book
Among Marshallese the ri-bwebwenato (storyteller) is well known and respected, a living repository and transmitter of traditional history and culture. Here are ninety folktales and stories of historical events, collected and translated into English during the third quarter of the twentieth century. They include tales of origins, humanlike animals, ogres, and sprites–some malevolent, some playful. Many are presented in the original language and are amplified by extensive commentary.
