Description:Ilikera with his "ragomo". The big rings are called "bokolo" and the small rings are "ovala". IL said they are decoration. There are also photos of Ilikera with his "kile"; the 1/4 disk used for calling the "ranebongi" wind and the 1/2 disk for stopping it; with "dala" which is used to stop the devil at shrines (v. "sabokai"), and with "pipionani", a bamboo plunger which is used to attract fish. The files in this bundle are related to the bundle with the following Bundle IDs or file name IDs: a015IL.
Still practises some customs (such as the use of the ragomo described in a015IL) and adheres to various spiritual taboos. He told me he never lets tourists take photos of his ragomo and other custom objects that he keeps, but he was keen for me to do so and insisted that he was happy for me to use the data in any of the ways I mentioned, including publishing data and photographs in linguistic publications, community materials or the British Museum Melanesia Project.
