Adi Vadrasei

An iTaube luveniwai (necklace) made from whale's tooth stained with kura (Morinda citrifolia) scrapings and lime. Known as Adi Vadrasei, the teeth are from a cave at Naicobocobo and were found by Chief Goneday. The vuasagale was given as a present commemorating the birth of Adi Vadrasei, the Tui Bua's grand-daughter and daughter of Adi Rawaqavanua, at Seatura.
