Description:
Letin describes how people made grass skirts before the introduction of textile clothing to the Mewun. With a completed skirt on her lap, she demonstrates the movements used to roll banana fibres into the tassels that make up the skirt. She bemoans the loss of knowledge, declaring at the end of the video that she is the only one who remembers how to make a traditional skirt.
