Education Without Schools: Learning Among the Ponapeans


by N. J. Colletta 1975

The Ponapeans are predominantly an agrarian people who tend to live on dispersed agricultural plots rather than in consolidated villages or in the district center enclaves, Although government employment and schooling have increased their steady gravitation toward the latter. The physical environment of the island, with its geographic isolation, high rainfall, and fertile coastal plains, has structured the evolution of a subsistence agrarian economy functioning on an extended communal family effort as a means of assuring survival. It is the informal transmission of the knowledge, skills, attitudes, and beliefs commensurate to this mode of subsistence that this article shall focus upon.
