Tapu

The first rule is to never load a gun when you are walking.  Never aim it at anyone.  It is very dangerous.  You can kill someone so watch out.  When you go hunting never leave a dead animal or else you will get tapu.  Tapu is a type of curse.

Back in the day whenever babies died the mother would wrap it up and put it on a tree and if you climbed the tree you would get sick and if you broke a branch you would die slowly.  

And one time there was a flood and my uncle says you could see their bones and you would never know if it was a tapu tree or not.
