Description(s):
This myth tells the origin of the “Tamate” headdresses that are worn during certain ritual dances on Vanikoro. These characteristic headdresses are unique to Vanikoro in their shape and colour; but they are reminiscent of the ritual headdresses that are worn in the nearby islands of northern Vanuatu, in the south. s1–s22 – Once upon a time, a married couple left Vanikoro on their sailing canoe. They sailed northwest to Utupua, where they spent a few months with their relatives. When the winds finally blew southeast again, they embarked to return home. s23–s52 – But they missed their island, and went too far southeast… till they found a mysterious islet named “Veluko”. They were welcomed by the islanders – human-like godly creatures called Tamate. The couple stayed with them for a few months, witnessing the beautiful dances of these spiritual creatures. s53–s93 – When the winds blew finally northwest again, the couple decided to return home; but they took with them five of these Tamate creatures. When they finally landed again on Vanikoro, the couple hid the Tamate in a cave for a few weeks. s94–s149 – The couple organised a large dancing festival on the island of Teanu, which lasted for a whole month. s150–s183 – On the last day of the festival, they gathered all their countrymen on the shore, and finally revealed publicly the majestic dances of the Tamate spirits.
