There was lived on Kosrae a race of giants with curly hair. These were no legends from children's fairy tales, but a real race of people. As late as 2005 elders can name the living descendants of this giant race. There is apparently some social embarrassment, the source of which I know not, that has caused people to prefer to keep secret or to outright deny that they are the descendants of these giants. I have been told names, but also been told not to disclose these names.
The following is from the language of the giants, the numbers from one to ten, as a remembered chant by Jusda [Amos Elesha] Nena Kilafwasru of Malem. She learned the chant in sixth grade, circa mid-1950s. The spelling is a phonetic interpretation of her chant done by Nena Kilafwasru.
My presumption, especially given the curly hair, is that there might have been a founding progenitor or progenitors who were a people from another Pacific island such as Tonga. My only hope would be that someday someone might recognize the giant counting language as a known language on the planet and resolve the mystery.
