Description:This is the story of the warrior Potii'o from Hiva 'Oa (Hanaiapa). Potii'o made a tour around all the valleys of Hiva 'Oa and did not return to his home valley for a long time. One day he returns back to his father who is blind. At first his father does not accept that Potii'o is his son because he is convinced that he is dead. Potii'o having several head trophies around his waist shows his father which makes him believe that he is his son because he is a warrior. One day Potii'o decides to go to Fatu Iva on canoe taking his father with him. Half way to Fatu Iva, he kills his father because he fears that the warriors of Fatu Iva will kill and eat him. He lets his father and his head trophies sink to the bottom of the sea in safety of the enemies at Fatu Iva. When they reach Fatu Iva (Omoa) they go inland and fight their battle with the warriors of Omoa. They do not finish their battle, but escape back to the sea and set off with their canoes. They return to Hiva 'Oa.
