This video was inspired by a restaurant that was named after a man I’d never heard of. A man who it turns out is Kosrae’s most famous historical figure. A man who the more I learned about the more I began to wonder if we should remember him at all.
But I suppose that’s the thing about fame. It makes a man out of a monster.
Also, just a bit of housekeeping: I’m currently attending three weddings in a row (none of which are in my province/country) so I’m trying to stick to my weekly upload for at least a full year but the final video from Kosrae (in two weeks) is four times the size of our normal videos and extremely sensitive material so it may be a few days delayed.
