The tape begins with a continuation of the story by Ikirhep from Side B of Tape 11. This is followed by a song (iumaw) about the navigator Sittouwa, sung by the same speaker. The second song (also iumaw) is likewise about Sittouwa.

The third item is a story, told by Ikirhep, about the voyage to Saipan of the Satawal
canoe, Mai Sugun, which was the first to re-open the contact by canoe between the two islands in 1970. This story is not concluded on this tape, but continues onto Side A of Tape 13.
