Title in Kulisusu: Langkule

Told by: La Bura

Date: February 1996

We have heard from our grandparents, there was a man named Langkule.

Langkule was tall, the length of one axe handle more and he would have reached the dome of the sky.

Langkule had a living place. It was along the Banda Sea, at the putting-in place called La Saa.

His hearth and his pot are at the putting-in place called Wacu Tolu Boto (Three Stones).

His footprint is on the rocky shoreline at La Bula.
