Naseli Kaitu

Copyright © Jocelyn Carlin 2004
Naseli Kaitu, 1933 - 2007, is a chief and elder of Funafuti people. A carpenter most of his life, he worked on Banaba from 1952 - 56 for 8 pound a month and built classrooms more recently for Motofoua on Vaitupu Island one of the nation's two secondary schools. He says he's been fishing nearly every day of his life and these days in his retirement enjoys throwing a net out over the reef in the lagoon near his home at Fogafale on the island capital of Funafuti.
