Bibliographic Citation:Ratu, Hilarius, Danerek, H. Stefan, Danerek, H. Stefan, Danerek, H. Stefan, Cawa Timbane; 2015-06-14; Genre: Myth/oral history: Title: Watu pou (Boat rock). Cawa Timbane tells the first settler tale Watu Pou, beginning with the arrival of three ancestral pairs, and ‘the land was already there’. Cawa claimed to strictly follow the story as his parents and grandparents had taught him. Three ancestral pairs drifted on a boat from the west and arrived at Watu Pou, a rock by the Palu’e shore that is their boat,m anchored to the island. The pairs have children and build a community. One of the son’s, Langga, receives divination in a dream that he has to sacrifice his child. When he is about to thrust a knife into his unknowing son, he hears a voice that says that he must sacrifice buffalo instead (like Abraham in the Bible and the Koran), and from now on, and a buffalo appears. That was how the buffalo sacrifice tradition began. Cawa also tells about hoe the Ko’a (one of a dozen ‘ceremonial land-domains’) people moved from the hills of Awa (where the buffalo sacrifice allegedly originates from), to different places in or around Ko’a, where they built new ceremonial centres and continued to sacrifice buffalo. Recorded late morning in Kampong Ko’a by SD with the AT2020 mic, 14 June 2015, in Cawa's house, together with his wife, Toji. See also Raja no'o Puteri, a folk tale recorded on the same occasion. ; digital wav file recorded at 48 khz/24 bit, eaf file; Kaipuleohone University of Hawai'i Digital Language Archive;http://hdl.handle.net/10125/48464.
