Description:A legend about how coconuts were introduced to Baluan. A father and son go out fishing, but a masalai (evil spirit) smells their fish and chases them. When they have fed all their fish to the masalai and are still being chased, the father tells his son to kill him and feed him to the masalai, but to take his head home with him. The son eventually does this and escapes with his life. He buries his father's head near the house. Later a coconut tree starts growing on the grave. If one looks at a coconut nowadays, it looks like a human head. Language as given: Paluai
