Description:The story starts with two chiefs arguing over who is the owner of a small island off the shore. They make a bet that if the island belongs to chief A, it will have sunk the next day, if it belongs to chief B, it will stay there. The next morning, the island has indeed sunk, proving chief A to be the rightful owner. On the island, however, there is a kava plant and now several other plants set out to befriend the kava and take it with them. But only the coconut manages to persuade the kava that they would make a good couple: The ground kava roots can be squeezed out with the cloth-like parts of the coconut palm and the shell of a coconut can serve as a receptacle for the kava drink. The story ends on a thoughtful note that today, this alliance is no longer respected as textiles have replaced the coconut cloth and cups take the place of coconut shells.
