braiding in Sulawesi Island, Indonesia
Note 1. Noémi Speiser coined the term Trinity to the
kinds of braids that are seen in the regions wherever the l-m braiding
is practiced. They are twin 2-ridge flat,
and 4-ridge flat braids with a twill pattern.
Note 2. The Thai minorities use
the same set of fingers for mounting the loops, but transfer the loop
the upper shank by inserting the operator under it.
Note 3. The 2-person 9-loop
technique used in Saddan Toraja will be discussed in a later issue in
to the on-going research of the Pote.
Note 4. We use here scarlet
in place of red, because we
are using too many R's and r's in
this section that may cause confusion.
