About article:

The Raŋitoki fragment, here described in the literature for the first time, consists of a piece of bark-cloth collected on Easter Island in March 1869 that has painted on its surface a short rongorongo (RR) sequence of glyphs. Analysis of the historiography and inscription of the Raŋitoki fragment suggests that it is, most likely, a genuine relic of the rongorongo tradition on Easter Island and thus represents an authentic addition to the known corpus of RR inscriptions.
