Description:This is the legend of the two eels, Koueenui and Koueeiti of Nuku Hiva and Fatu Iva island. In this version of the legend of Koueenui (see 'Koueenui-Mi'), the "big eel" Koueenui, dwelling on Nuku Hiva in the river of Taipivai, meets Koueeiti, the "small eel", from Hanavave of Fatu Iva island. They tell each other about their diets. It turns out that Koueeiti enjoys much more delicious food on his island. Koueeiti returns to Fatu Iva. One day Koueenui sets himself on the way to pay Koueeiti a visit. On his arrival at Fatu Iva he swims up to Koueeiti's water hole which is high up in the mountains. On his way Koueenui "big eel" gets stuck because he is considerable larger in size than Koueeiti "small eel". The consequence is that the water of the river does not flow down to the village of Hanavave anymore. Puzzled by this the Hanavave people go to have a look, and they find the big eel and kill him.
