En Fong (Moon Phase) Poster

Kosrae Island Observer ISLET members created a poster featuring 30 en fong (moon phases) from Kosrae. Each en fong has a slightly different visual characteristics and meaning. The main purpose of the poster is to provide a learning tool for community and schools to enhance people of Kosraeā€™s Indigenous knowledge on traditional fishing and farming practices during each moon phase. ISLET members interviewed elders from around the island and documented their knowledge on traditional fishing and farming practices. Elders and knowledge holders helped ISLET members to verify, validate, and refine information for each moon phase before the poster was finalized (2019).
