The entire tape is taken up by Ewiyoang, a man of Satawal who passed away in 1988. He relates the story of the voyages of Agrupw from Satawal to Saipan, and how he purchaed the rights to colonize Saipan from the Spanish.

On the tape Ewiyoang claims to be 100 years old; however his real age, based on his
work in the phosphate mines in Angaur during the Japanese era and other information, was closer to the early or mid-'80's at his death.
