Description:In the legend of Kueenui, the "big eel", Kueenui, dwelling on Nuku Hiva in the river of Taipivai, meets Kueeiti, the "small eel" from Hanavave on Fatu Iva. After having tasted the food of Kueenui, Kueeiti suggests to go to Fatu Iva where there is much more delicious and nice smelling food. They leave for Fatu Iva. When arriving at Hanavave (Fatu Iva) Kueenui, actually quite large in size cannot swim up to Kueeiti's water hole. He gets stuck in the river bed and the water consequently does not flow down to the village of Hanavave anymore. Puzzled by this the Hanavave people go to have a look what is going on. They find the big eel and kill him. Kueeiti manages to escape to the sea.
