Description:Asariat begins with the history of Mambor. Mambor was initially unsettled and was used by the Moor and Yaur for fishing. Mambor and Hariti were later settled by inhabitants of Moor looking for a less salty source of drinking water. Because of a mosquito problem, residents of Hariti moved to Mambor for a time. Asariat then describes various sea spirits that live in the area, including Mambaruva. He tells the story of a slave raid (rak) by the Wandamen people in which Mambaruva's drum was stolen. At the end, Asariat translates the stories into Papuan Malay.
Asariat is a respected elder on Mambor. He has extensive knowledge of local traditions and practices. He is a traditional healer ("dukun" in Malay).
Olfied served as Dave's translator and assistant during his first trip to Mambor in 2008.
