One group performed this one dance in an ancient Pohnpei style. The performance wasn't perfect, and it was obvious that one girl just tried to follow what the others did. We appreciated their attempt to salvage a piece of their own old culture, even if it wasn't as fun and "sexy" as the dances imported from Polynesia.
