wednesday.. how come?
I see.. so the clan heads is like the rulers of the traditional culture?
Sinbad, so each outer islands in the lagoon have their won chief also, aside from the one for Weno. right?.. Thanks for your informations..
the traditional chieftainship in Chuuk differs from other island such as PNI because it's a matrinial hierarchy. If you were soupwun, it's more likely your sister's son will become the next soupwun than your own son. And no, we don't have a paramount chief of all CHUUK.
this is my understanding and stand to be corrected.
Chuuk as a whole never have a chief. Each island or group of isand have their own chief. In the past there were always wars between clans, islands and the like. All lands ownership in the past in Chuuk lagoon are the results of wars between clans, villages or islands. The new names for different chiefs are new to chuuk. Only one name for chief was used in chuuk; SAMOL. Nothing else.
