The Ton Clan

The Ton clan existed on both Pohnpei and Kosrae and other Pacific islands. Here's how the clan began on Kosrae. A Ton in the river Infas-srisrik in okat bore a very beautiful daughter. When she was older, she was making a wreath of flowers for her hair and some people spotted her and went to Lelu to tell the King about her and told the King about her.He told his servants to bring the girl to him so he can see her in his own eyes. The servants when there and brought the girl to the king and the king made her his wife. From this union, the ton clan begun. No one from this clan would ever eat river eel which is known as the "ton" in Kosrae but todays generation eat them as regular food.
