Title:Simarongrong
Contributor (annotator):JM
Contributor (author):BV
Coverage:Vanuatu
Description:The informant tells a story about the origins of the "Simarongrong bones" which are powerful magic objects. In the story, a boy tricks his grandmother into thinking he ate more bananas than he was allowed to. She believes the evidence of her eyes over his own testimony and he burns himself, only his bones remaining. The name `Simarongrong' is apparently a loan version for the Daakaka term `temyar dengdeng', "the crying demon". The story probably was once accompanied by a song, which is however either said to be taboo or forgotten.
