Abstract Ein junger Mann aus der Siedlung Tuo auf Fenualoa klettert auf einen Baum und pflückt Arekanüsse für einen älteren Mann. Dieser kaut dann die von den Faserhüllen befreiten Nüsse mit Betelblättern und gebranntem gelöschtem Kalk.
In the bushland of Fenualoa (Ngasinue) a young man scales a betel palm (Areca catechu L.) with a climbing rope to pick a bunch of nuts for an older man. The latter takes the betel nuts home and enjoys them, freeing them from the fibrous covering and then chewing them with betel leaves (Piper betle L.) and slaked lime which has also been procured. In another part of the village, an old man, similarly engaged in "betel chewing", uses a small mortar for pouding the nuts.
