Ri'imalefo divines, Folofo'u puts questions, Bobokwala and Taaboo, etc. watch. These are Kwailala'e people, from the coastal slopes of Sinalagu. Man with cordyline leaves is Ri'imalefo; man with hand behind back is Taaboo; middle man on right is Taaboo's uncle, Folofo'u. Ai'efunu, the dead priest, was Taaboo's father and Folofo'u's older brother. The stout man looking at camera on right is Bobokwala; sitting at back is Laeniamae, the middle son of Ai'efunu. Bobokwala eventually succeeded his father as the priest, but not until his elder brother Laete'eboo, who was selected for the position here, became Christian.
