Queen: Why exactly are we traveling to Uatolari [a remote area on the south coast] this weekend?

Me: They are moving lulik [sacred objects] from Uatolari Aflocai to the mountain above, Nahasaka. In 1975, the Babulo people moved the lulik down from the mountains for protection to Uatolari Aflocai. Now they are returning it, it is a very big deal. The inauguration of a new lulik house has not happened for about 100 years.

Saturday is when they lay the first stone and put up the first timbers.

We will get to see the lulik: stones, flag, rota [sceptre given to the kingdom by the Portuguese], and a hat, and a small snake, cobra.

That’s all I understand.
