Lakimosa Ngaji Pione, Kéli, utters a kind of warning or curse used in the past before the border war with the enemy domain Wotomengucapkan sejenis peringatan atau kutukan zaman perang perbatasan dahulu dengan wilayah Woto. ’Lé'e' and ’nira’, sharp objects, are a binary pair in the rituals couplet.’ Lé'e' usually refers to the machete. 'Céli' (as slipping in a machete) and ’lebha' (coconut palm branch used to make a pointy stick ’nira’) is the other pair.
