Description
In Fatumea there is one spring called We Lulik at the top of the Bei Ulu Molik ('the bald head of the grand ancestor') mountain (around 1800 feet above sea level). The spring is believed to be connected with the sea as its waters decrease during the low tide of the ocean, and are full during the high tide. It emerged first when all else was sea. This is the most sacred spring for the people of Koba Lima. It has a particular sacred name, but because of its sacredness and because the respect for and fear of its great sacredness and great heat, its name can only be mentioned at those rare times when community sacred offerings are made.
