...Before there was Europeans...
Henry Kabere: 'Before there was Europeans on this island, if both parties are in dispute about the land, they'd dispute and there's nobody to stop them and they end up fighting. Sometime they have big trouble. Before the white man came-if they dispute the land they must go fighting, there was nobody to stop them.'
Keywords: Kobere, Henry, land disputes, land ownership, Malo's laws
