FOLK TALES (TALA 'KAI)
Inosia, daughter of Valo and Neke, was born in Nanumea about 1898 and died there in 1982, about 84 years old. Inosia married Selulo about 1916. They did not have any children of their own, but adopted Selulo Jr. Later, Inosia adopted and raised Selulo's son, Lotoalofa -- he lived with Inosia when we recorded stories from her in 1973 and 1974. His photo with Inosia is among the 1973 family photos, household number 3.
Inosia was a gifted storyteller, well known in Nanumea for her pleasing telling of folk tales, Tala 'Kai.
