Description: Genre: Song/Oral history. Theme: Ware Pa'e. Title: Laki ndora.

Sung by Maria Methi and her mother Yuliana in their home. The song is based on the tales (oral history) about Ware told by his descendants in Lei. Recorded in Mata Mere 8 July 2014. Metaphores in this song are, as in ritual language, couplets, paired binary words and terms. Laki ndora is an alias referring to expansion of territory by 'ndora' (vine sweet potato) as metaphor.
