DESCRIPTION: 18 p. : Reprint ; 28 cm.
NOTES: From: American Anthropologist v.88:no.3 (1986:Sep) pp.551-568.
NOTES: "Kachaw is prominent in Truk's and Ponape's origin myths and legendary history. Since European contact, it has been widely assumed to be the Carolinian name for the island of Kosrae. Linguistic and textual evidence show it to have been a name for the sky world, which was closely linked to the terrestrial one in traditional Micronesian world view and interpretation of history"
