Okay, today is chief's day; so us in · the village of Samueo, · this small group of us are together other to show that the chiefs, they were people who in the past · they helped people to um, to do their work. · When there was a problem, the chief was the first to come and help, to solve the problems that · the things that were bad in the past; and today · we've come together; we've brought a small pig, · that these two are cutting here. · We come, come together every um fifth of March. · So we are um what, we are happy because when, when · the chiefs · it's like people in Vanuatu, people in Vanuatu who um are um, they're happy because of this day. · They remember Chief's Day; it's like · they think about before when the chiefs were people who · they helped um, the boys or the people of the villages; and · on the topic of chiefs, if · we do um, it follows um, the lines so that when my grandad was a chief, · then when he fathers · my father, the firstborn, · then the father, when, then my father who has however many brothers, and · only the first one takes um, the path of the grandfather who was chief; and then when · the old man has a son and says, however many of them there are the first boy, he will also take the role of chief. · So the path of the chiefs is, they pass it on like this, it only follows the firstborns. · And it's not possible for any women to become chiefs of the people of Ambrym, women can't be chiefs. · It's just for men. · And they follow um different ranks that they give to them. · That's · a pig that the boys are cutting for us to celebrate with the old men who are chiefs. · So today in the afternoon, · we um, we'll eat with them; then we'll thank them for the work that they always do for um · the small, um, yes, community we live in. · Yes this boy is cutting out the guts of this pig. · But the head hasn't been cut off yet. · And we people of Ambrym always kill pigs on Chief's Day because · pigs are something that the people of Ambrym value very highly. · It makes it so that always when it's Chief's Day we have to kill a pig. · Um, this one maybe the pig is only small but if we were really ready then they should kill a pig whose tusk is round. · And then the boys in the afternoon they'll um, · again in the afternoon then, the boys will um · they'll eat it with the chiefs and the uncles will say um, the chiefs will thank us, · for the pig and for the work that we've done for them today. · Yes so maybe that's the small um, story about it that I can give about today; thank you. ·
Okay it's like another thing, we um, · some, us, our grandfather was, they had um ranks; and for us the rank they gave to · our ancestor was Milinem. · And when he died they gave it to our grandfather; then this grandfather · he worked with it until he died. · And then now they've given it to my father and it's this old man who carries out the work of a chief today and guides us in our village. · Yes so that was all I wanted to say properly; thank you.
