MUSE Project - ANUTA

Feinberg's update on Anuta begins with a section on his diverse experience when he first worked in this small, remote Polyynesian fellowship in the Solomon Islands. This last section deals with some of the 21st-century challenges facing Anutans.

The Anutans, like many other tribes that live on small, isolated isles, aspire to preserve ancient traditions while contributing to the global economic development. All in all, Feinberg offers the reader great materials to study the relationships between demographics, ecology, culture as well as social issues in this evolving age.

Solomon Islands, By Richard Feinberg, P 267-302

I have been working with Anuta, an insulated Polyynesian Isle in the east of the Solomon Islands, for two years. Though the Anutans gave up their old adoration rites in the second ten years of this great twentieth c., they remain confident of the reality of their pre-Christian spiritual faith.

On my first trip to Anuta in the early 1970s, my eldest coworkers remembered testifying for great gods to teach the rite of cava; and some Anutans are still confident about the ancient faith. Moreover, anutanic beliefs have certainly evolved over the years. Finally, I would like to point out that my aim in this paper is to present as accurately as possible the Anutans' opinions about their pre-Christian religious system.

In the interests of thriftiness and clearness, I have a tendency to para-phrase instead of the originals of anutane, and in this respect I do not present any anutane expression. However, I would also like to say that the bilingual people of the island have always supported my portrayals of their position; and I take solace from Anutan's assurance that my para-phrasing has not brought about greater distortions.

The first clear hint that non-Christian minds still have an important part in the lives of Annuan came on New Year's 1973, towards the end of my first sojourn. The young folks had remained up all dark to perform at the cemetery. It gave me the chance to ask about their spiritual meetings.

Over the next few months I have taken up many tales of ghosts locally, much of what I know about the texture of Anuta's ghost worlds, and I have learnt of the belief with which the Anutans still adhere to their ancientism. Many of this information was written down in my papers on the medicinal faith of Annutan (Feinberg 1979, 1980) and the societal structures (1981a).

Aim of this tour was to gather, rewrite and interpret the verbal tradition of the Anutans. Ghosts of Autan are in different professions. However, there are some qualities that divide minds, regardless of their nature. They' are sexually transmitted beings whose emotions and society are similar to those of humans. Before Christ, such an obsessed individual was referred to as a vakaatua'spirit vessel' or'spirit medium', and through such media the Spirits made their emotions known to man.

First ( "Firth", born in 1967, 1970) portrays the spiritual medium as a great concern of Tikopians, both psychologically and socially, at least until the fifties. Occasionally, humans are still obsessed with ghosts, which leads to transient mental incapacity (see Feinberg 1979, 1980). However, Anutan tends to regard this as free of welfare payments. Ghosts are more mighty than humans, as their capacity to materialize and dematerialize at will, to move with amazing speed and to manipulate nature's phenomenon proves.

Spectres can cause rains or sunlight, plants to dying or blooming, fishs to throw themselves on an angler's hooks, or starving fisherman to avoid. Though they have their own worries, they are also interested in the live world. General anutanic word for "spirit" is attica. Mightiest minds with clearly distinguished identities and customs are known as tupuas, the most important of which were the minds of dead chieftains and other leaders.

Another kind of mighty sheath contains age-old ghosts that had never taken man's shape. One could call such ghosts coarsely "deadly". Ghosts of this kind were sometimes referred to as Ghosts Tupu, but they were differentiated from Tupu. Finally, there are smaller ghosts. They are''common'' or' indistinguishable spirits'.

Name of the great Pan-Polynesian deities - Rongo, Tu and Taane-evoke from today's Anutan. The name does not relate to an organism, however, but to a group of ghosts connected to the oceans. He is known to Anutans as Te Ariki o Rangi'The Chief of the Heavens'. Anutan' is what they call Te Papine Ariki'The Chiefly Female' or Te Papine Totonga, a song that indicates that she was a woman of exceptional nymph.

There is another category of antique ghosts that can be crudely described as totem. Anuta' s current inhabitants are said to have come to the islands by canoe from Tonga and Uvea. The groups were bringing protection from their home countries. The third is Kainanga i Pangatau, a descendant of the two Nau Ariki and Nau Pangatau and their common husbands Pu Pangatau.

Those ghosts weren't tupuas. Kainanga i Mua, Kainanga i Tepuko and Kainanga i Rotomua all had the same atua: te mangoo'the shark'. It was not prohibited for the humans in these "clans" to feed on the sharks, since ordinary ones in the sea - which were probably captured with hooks and lines - were not atuas.

Rather, one could recognize a sharks by its uncommon behavior as atuas. He was te ttua te waa tangata'a man-killing spirit'. If you were mad at another one, you appealed to the shark's mind to "bite" the offending one. Every kind of sharks could be an age.

A further etua associated with Kainanga i Mua was the "octopus". Partly a feminine ghost, sometimes known as Te Pae'The Mother(?)'. It was an awakening porau'voyaging spirit' that took physical form in the physical form of an Octoberus. It' interesting that travel, an extremely male phenomenon in everyday society, should be associated with a feminine minds.

However, the usual gender role is mirrored in the associations of murder with a man's mind (the shark), while seamen are seeking shelter and food from a woman's mind (the squid). The Kainanga i Pangatau, like the other'clans', was closely associated with two "deadly" spirits: te ponu'sea turtle' and te iriko'manta ray'.

Since Anutans barely caught these creatures, this was not a great need. It seems that the Pangatau woman was the traveler. A famous strongman (toa), Toomotu, called on Piita, who stepped into his corpse and made him an unbelievably mighty warrior. "The" Clans Totems" are well known among today's Anutans, but I could not find much extra information about them.

We remember more about ghosts known as tupu penuá. The other motikitiki tales relate to Te Ao Rere'Great Magellanic Cloud' and Te Ao Toka'Small Magellanic Cloud' as the feminine ghosts Rua Taka (see below). Manu's northern wings are short as his eastern wings because he was fractured in a battle with Motikitiki for the feminine ghost, Taro (Antares).

Faith in the tupuas has stayed as strong as ever. In Anuta, tupu penuas were indigenous ghosts, perhaps since their origin (pakatupu). It would help those who "respected" them (pakaepa) but who did not, bring their deaths and misfortunes. The Tupu penuas were many and of both genders.

Many of them prefer to dwell in caverns, and there are tales of battle for dwellings among the tupuas of the Penuas. The following are some of the liquors in this class: Uuperuuu was a feminine ghost with only one chest, which was very long and wrinkled (well uu e peruperu). Nowadays Anutans usually call Uunapine Puapine by its name.

Access was banned to humans, especially infants, especially in the evenings and at nights. Those nurses were aging agos, reflection of a ghost. The Rua Taka and its expulsion from the islands by Tearakura is one of the most famous tales of the islands about it. and immediately recognized her as a ghost.

In contrast to most atuas, they did not remain for a brief period of their lives and disappeared. And they stayed and giggled every single one of them every single one of them - or more likely, given the natural beauty of the ghosts of Anutania, every single one of them, every nocturnal. He/it cautioned them that if they would not stop, it would repair them, so that they could not vanish in the mornings, as the ghosts used to do; and the whole isle would see their shells.

"Tautari ki te o na o rga attua; sa u a ku kapoki mai ki a tangata nei") They did not stop existing, but went into the spirit kingdom and were never seen again by humans. It was not a traditionally Anutanian name, but a name he invented especially for the event (ne patu).

There are three types of stories in Anutan. And Paaira was once a man, now a woman. Besides Uuarenga two other tupuas were living in Te Vae Reke-Matarua and Pu Roa - 277. Those ghosts were masculine, too. In the last years it was not very well known because of the cathedral. However, many of them have important characteristics in common with Tampu pens.

Of these, Ure'Penis' was the name for a masculine ghost, and Tore'Vagina' was a feminine ghost. There are two kinds of atuas in the broadest sense: small ghosts, just known as atuas, and large ghosts, most of which are known as tupuas. A tupuah is therefore a kind oftua.

Anuta' s first heathen deities - regular worshippers - were dead chieftains, the most important being Tearakura. It is said that Tearakura was Anuta's chieftain about nine generation ago and led the slaughtering of the men of the island te tae tanga or te penalty. But it was the fast, sporty Tauvakatai who took the leadership in the fight against the brothers' most important enemy - a mighty fighter by the name of Ranquinapa - and in the defense against a later Ticopian Invasion.

Tearakura, Pu Tepuko and Tauvakatai became the founding fathers of three of Anutas Quainanga Clan', and Tearakura was the head of the fellowship until his deaths. From then on Tui Anuta (also known as Te Ariki i Mua), the elder of the islands, comes from Tearakura's offspring in Qainanga i Mua; the son, - 278 Tui Tainanga (also known as Te Ariki Tepuko or Te Ariki i Muri) from Pu Tepukos offspring in the second place of Qainanga i Tepuko.

Under the name Te Paanau Ariki, Tearakura and his brothers and sisters are known as'The Chiefly Brethren', and the establishment of today's'clan system' is considered a turning point. When a ghost was not approached by the right name, there was no help. Another person identifies Pu Nukuora as the Anutanic married name of Tearakura's youngest twin, Tauvakatai.

Its analogy is ii. Nau Arriki was the last of the great gods from this brother and sister group. She was Nauriki, because she was tea Ayki papine'the feminine chief'. So when he was first identified as Mr. and Mrs. Ariki Manuel. Raropuko made a joke of Pu Avatere, a fighter who was living at the Paanau Aki era and was murdered by Ranginapa.

In fact, she is called te Ayriki papine'the Feminine Leader' and is the only Feminine Leader narrated in the Anutane story. The reason she kept this posture was that she was the first woman (te urumatua papine) of Paanauriki. Nau was not a leader as Nau Daddy, but she had a formidable manasecond only for Tearakura.

She used the Anutanic word "the highest percentage of the sheet (ne tapite uu or te rough rau)", thus alluding to the controls of the certified sheets from which the manifestation arose. When she died, when she became an atea, Nau Ariki was her name ("ingoapakaatua"), which nobody could pronounce because of His Holiness.

She has long lost the name she was given in the course of regular discussion. Together with the Paanau Ariki, and almost equal to Tearakura in importance, was Toroaki. He was the first Uvea to Anuta, the father of Pu Taupare. The Taupare Pu never acted as chieftain and was overshadowed by his Tongan brother-in-law Pu Kaurave.

When Ruokimata died, Toroaki took the lead and became the first chieftain of the Uvaean line of Anuta and Tearakura's great-grandfather. One of Toroaki's tasks as a ghost was to help Anutans at sea. But it was believed that all people become ghosts after their deaths ((cf. Hanson 1986a, 1986b). In general, the more famous a figure is, the more mighty his mind.

Just as live humans are interested in the well-being of their loved ones, so are ghosts interested in the well-being of their heirs. In times of need, one could ask not only the chieftains but also the ghosts of dead relations - above all those of the patrilinean forebears and motherly uncle - for help. The most ghost meetings in recent years have taken place with `general' or `undifferentiated spirits'.

They can be or never have been the spirit of dead men. Seldom, Anutans try to find such minds by name, nor do they have highly sophisticated personal - 282 alitarians. With this in mind, "generic spirits" can be an appropriate luster for beings of this kind.

They are rare, if at all useful, and they are never worshiped. Ghosts are apparently outraged, and they quickly left the stage (see Feinberg n.d.b. for a description of certain encounters). Many Anutans describe spiritual meetings as very scary and tell of an overpowering desire to escape. However, when men conquer their anxiety and assert themselves or approach the mind directly, the tua usually withdraws (Feinberg n.d.b.; cf. Levy 1973: 165).

Ghosts can take many shapes. They often look like normal humans, but are bigger and more mighty. While some island dwellers say they encounter ghosts more often in kids than in grown-ups, they can be seen by individuals of all ages. During a recent Solomon Islands meeting, I talked to some Anutans about my experiences on New Year's Dawn 1973 (see above).

" Sometimes a ghost can take the shape of an avatar, birds, reptiles or mammals rather than a single being. I had doubts about the rationale of this reply, but when I quipped it in jest to other peoples, there was a general consensus with the boy's assessmen. For my c. i. i. the most apparent statement was that it wasn't a scarecrow. It was a ghost.

In the end, such experience is likely to be seen as a penalty by the old minds or the Christian God. In their homes they crowded for a fortnight, especially at nights, to block the doorways and not dare to go outside. I' ve been informed that all Tikopians, Anutans and even Melanesians who go to the seas near Honiara are acquainted with it.

There are some who find it scary, others don't. One of the other informants said he had also seen'Ghost Ships' (vaka atua) near Honiara and on the Russell Islands, but never on Anuta. Atuas on board such vessels remain on their own and usually do not come near the canoe. Anutan' s views on such issues differ greatly.

Occasionally it appears bright lying-and sometimes not-is because they go to bed on board a boat and turn off the light (!). You were several hundred meters away and could see 285 votes speaking, but you could not see any humans. I' ve been exploring other options than what I saw in it.

Moreover, the vaca tua arrives at more or less the same place every single day, which a vessel would not do. You appear before Tikopia because there are still those on this isle who play the game of tikopia for heathens. Now and then, Pu Penuamuri tells us, the vaca at Guadalcanal is near enough that he can listen to ghosts speak, but he cannot speak their language or see their body.

On his first visit to Guadalcanal, he did not know what to think of these things, but those who had been living there for a long period of their lives were telling him what they were. In one way Pu Penuamuri's comprehension was different from that of most other Anutans and Tikopians. There is a general agreement that the vessel is occupied by ghosts of troops who perished on Guadalcanal during the Second World War.

During the conversation about ghosts, some folks asked me if I had ever seen one. You noticed that this was because I didn't really believe in the ghosts of Anutany. The same applies to other visitors from oversee. They' re not scared while the Anutans are living in death.

They do not see the ghosts of Anuta and are not afraid because they do not believe in them and know nothing about them. She added that there is a wealth of ghosts on Anuta and they come to humans both when they wake up and in a dream. Once Pu Nukumanaia, who is not easy to frighten and who is usually not even too afraid of ghosts, was hunted by an eagle near the Shrine.

A ghost once lifted Pu Maevatau. and he was probably laying in his home when he woke up. Most of this time Anuta was at least nominal Christian. That did not mean the forfeiture of the convictions about the truths of the old faith and the presence of heathens.

Rather, the Christian deity was seen as another ghost, similar to those who preceeded Him but surpassed them in awe. For a long time Anutans had been admiring Europe's richness and technical ingenuity. Equally important, however, was the assistance of a particularly mighty gods. To Anutan' s knowledge, the Europeans' structures of religion were similar to their own.

Both for Anutans and other Polynesians (e.g. Tikopia, see Firth 1959, 1967a[1940], 1970), the aim was to ensure the physical well-being of the group. When the Anutans were therefore faced with a divinity able to perform even better than their conventional minds, they were discreetly asked to venerate the new gods instead of the old.

However, in structural terms Christianity is so integrated into Anuta's worldview that the new system recapsulates the old. Anutanism' s sociopolitical structures were reasonably and ideologically endorsed by the spiritual realm in pre-Christian time. The same system is now backed by Anutanic Christianity. Like in ancient time, the ghosts give away the gift of qigong (cf. Shore 1989); but the final fountain (te tapito or te manual katoa) is now God and no longer the elves of the deaths.

So on my first time in Anuta the head of the village congregation (the Katechet of the island) was the younger brothers of the head. The first chieftain has the official honor in the chronological order, and it is he who has the last power to make choices, although this is done in the name of the fellowship.

First and foremost, the second chieftain is honored, but his leadership is more like that of the elder chieftain's elder relative, Mauro. After our discussion, Pu Avatere reflects that dreaming is very important for Solomon Islanders in general and Anutans in particular - unlike the Europeans, who do not seem to believe that dreaming is a particular revelation about outer realities.

The most Anutans take the writing verbatim. Although our talk was held in Anutan, he used the word. Thinking some biblical tales were not real, they would start to challenge the whole teaching of Christianity and could abandon the churches. He was better, he was said, to keep the folk loyal by keeping a "white lie".

Anutanen has succeeded in combining different facets of Christianity and heathenism into a relatively well coordinated worldview. In spite of Anutan's strong faith in Christianity, nobody in the twenty years I have worked with them has voiced the least doubts about the existance of pre-Christian minds or their capacity to influence people's life.

Surprised because I thought the tupu pezua - 290 had been expelled from the school. Since the arrival of the temple, Pu Avatere proposed that Uuperuuuu, one of the ghosts there, probably spent most of the day on the other side of the monument (the side nearer to Pu Maevatau's home).

It was after the shell rang out to call the parish when they invaded the town. However, the opportunity that this was the work of another mind could not be excluded. Anutan' s said they can pronounce spells themselves (tautuku), but they don't have harsh raw spells that they consider a Melanese characteristic.

And I said that sometimes it is, folks who believe it's the most vulnerable. Mr. Mizak and other persons assembled in the building approved this view. The chieftain was Pu Teuku, and Pu Teuku's boy, Pu Parikitonga, had adopted Pu Nukuoika when he was a newborn.

Now that they have passed away and come to Átua, they no longer care so much for him, but they are still worried about his well-being and have not disappointed him when he has turned to them. Anutanic Christianity, unlike its occidental equivalent, but like the ancient worship of the Isle, allows important people to be added to the mantheon of the deities and subgods.

Because of his love and dedication to the Solomon tribe he did not escape the invasions of Japan during the Second World War, unlike most Europeans. Dr. Fox had few business-to-business with Anuta. Towards the end of my first Solomon Islands trip, I assisted in arranging a meet at the Honiara Main Clinic between Fox and the bosses of Anautan.

He had a personal audition with the head of the company at least once, perhaps in his dreams. According to Pu Avatere's above quoted commentary, he corresponding with Anutans (as with other Solomon Islanders), answered a number of queries and gave advices. Perhaps more important, his fame as a sage and mighty chapter director prevailed throughout the island and was well anchored in the heads of the Anutans.

Docta then sacrificed the meal and the humans began to consume. He was written in English from all parts of the Solomon Islands, and he always answered in the national tongue. u Teuku said that Dokta had once asked Anuta's boss not to call him by name.

So I asked if Dokta was a man or a ghost (Ko ia te tanga pe ko te atua?). But so many humans, among them also my informers (e.g. Pu Teuku was with his other classmates from Alangaula at the anniversary celebration in Honiara) that they seem undeniable. Eventually they came to the conclusion that he was probably anatoa.

Then, he quote his elder boss- 294 when he said that he did not consider Dokta a man, but te Paulau Arriki, which in this connection means either the sons or brothers of Jesus. Anutan' s spiritual convictions, in contrast to such anthropologic aspirations, seem to me no less rationally or experientially founded than her convictions on any other topic.

Anutan' s are attentive commentators who demand systemic proof for their interpretation. Thirteen ghosts are used as an explanation for uncommon, abnormal or menacing occurrences that cannot be described in everyday notions. Anuta' s source and the'ghost ship' at the seaside near Honiara are just two of them. Though not always directly visible, ghosts can be seen, listened to, smelt or felt.

There seems to be less a contradiction between rationalism and belief than between what is called the "personalistic" and "naturalistic" view of the causal (Foster 1976, Foster and Anderson 1978). Nearly everything that happens is in some way affected by mental powers, and ghosts are independent, self-motivated beings.

You would like to be sure that spirits and spirits of the species Avar and Tuupua penuas do not live without losses. For most Anutans it would be hard to admit that God or Jesus is an invention of their common imaginations without radical reshaping their perception of the world.

Their spiritual convictions in this regard are not particularly different from those of many Christians in the West. Anutan finds it difficult to believe that relatives who have taken good charge of her during her lifetime would stop taking after her and protecting her after her deaths. As the Fijians (Kaplan 1990), but unlike the Kwaio, the Anutans do not make a strong difference between Christianity and their ancient religions, in which one or the other must be rejected.

Nevertheless, the Anutans protect indigenous communities' independence and are proud of the languages, cultures and customs that set them apart from other Solomon Islanders. From this point of view, the messages of Anutan' s continuing engagement with both heathen minds and their particular Christianity (cf. Smith 1990; Armstrong 1990) are as much a matter of politics as of theology.

Ghosts are more mighty than live humans, but the moral and affinity norms are basically the same. First ( [1967a[1940], 1970) often quotes Nicopian formulas for the invocation of ghosts in which the petitioner presents himself as submissive, hungry, completely submissive. These formulas are supposed to make the ghosts feel sorry for their adorers (arofa[=ANU aropa]) and thus ensure their wealth and wellbeing.

Anutan' s contemporaries do not remember certain formulas, but many testimonies suggest that their forerunners conceived of relationships with their deities in a similar way. It would be for those of our forebears who neglect to care for and assist their relatives alive to renounce the conceptional foundations on which Anutans build their people. Christian God as the incarnation of charity is like an extraordinarily mighty forefather.

Anuta' s capacity of coexistence between the heathen and Christians is also influenced by the way of Christianity adopted by Anuta.
