text: Ahon showed up in the afternoon and he complains that I did not come to the Oleabu in Shiong. This year the Longokoa Morung performed a special dance (98) which originated in Chi and which is not danced in any other administered village. For it the dancers form two rows which always walk parallel and finally form two concentric circles. SKETCH
