Abstract Die Hüllen von eben geernteten Kokosnüssen vergräbt man für drei Monate im Schlamm, bevor sie, gesäubert und getrocknet, von alten Männern zu drei verschiedenen Schnurarten gedrillt und geflochten werden. Zum Schluß werden typische Kokosschnurbindungen bei einer Bootsreparatur gezeigt.
Old men harvest certain coconuts, remove the hulls, and bury these in the mud at the lagoon. After three months the hulls are recovered, cleaned, and dried. The elders of the community then gather to prepare rope from the fibers of the coconut hulls. Three types of cord are produced using two, three, or four strains of the fiber. Typical coconut-fiber cord bindings are shown being used in boat repair.
