Messengers descriptive analysis of this closed community includes the subsistence, material culture, social organization/control, and religion/values dimensions, as well as a strong focus on folklore, Christian reinterpretations of pagan elements, music, song, and dance. A very human picture emerges of these islanders, folk people in almost every respect.
