Mr. Fleming starts by telling about the Nuestra Senora de la Concepción (locally just called the Concepción), a Spanish galleon loaded with gold, jewels, silk, and spices from the orient which sunk just off Saipan's southern shore in 1638 (for more on this, including the involvement of government misappropriation and mutiny involving this ship, click this link: http://ns.gov.gu/galleon/index.html ).
Then he tells about the Spanish involvement in Saipan history.
Any of you who have spent time here may also be interested in his talk about the origin of some of the more common CNMI names.
If you want to know more about House of Taga, which he refers to at the end, click the following link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tinian (Also, there is more on House of Taga in the next video included in this album, and there are photos and video from there in the following Optimimagery.com album: http://www.optimimagery.com/THIS-IS-ME-Vacations-around-Sa/CNMI-ON-LAND/TINIAN/TINIAN-OCTOBER-2009/i-BZcBVXr
The video is a bit longer than most that I post, at 7 minutes, 24 seconds. You may have to wait a bit to let it load (press the pause button for a while), depending on your internet speed. You probably wanted to pour yourself a cup of coffee anyway, right?
