Description
The story of Wai Ulau told by Salvador Monteiro


A young man from Daragia Spring (near Irabere in Watu Carabao) requests permission to marry a young woman from Ossu. The woman and her parents refuse. He carries water from Daragia to Ossu in 7 blowpipes. He spills them on the ground by the pillars of the woman's house. There is a huge crashing sound as the ground beneath the house opens up and the hamlet and its occupants are swallowed up. A spring called Wai Ulau emerges.  A bird flys off to  Lalabu near Ossu Rua and a new spring emerges there as well.
