We Fulan

Oe Alas (forest of rattans) was traditionally a territory of the Kingdom Lookeu (Koba Lima). It is now in West Timor and a part of the Kingdom of Dafala (wife-takers to Lookeu). One spring in the complex is known as We Fulan. While the spring belongs to Uma Mahawar the name for the spring was given by two kings from Lookeu, Tita Lorok and Daka Lorok. Passing by the spring on their way to conquer the lands of others they 'hafulan' (furtively survey) the area in order to ascertain if others were in the vicinity. So We Fulan refers to the water where they hafula malu (where they furtively survey).
