Title: Ngalpun Wakai
This boo shell is our community voice (Ngalmun Lgau wakai) When we hear it blows and the echo sounds represent a community meeting. We also use it in our traditional feasting, island dancing to notify that represent us. It’s sounds the echo of letting people know who we are and the signal message.
