Amanaki Tama is a pre-made playable elder Sim from Felicity Island, one of the neighborhoods shipped with The Sims Castaway Stories. He is an island native and the Shaman of the tribe. He is the husband of Urari Tama and lives with her and his two apprentices; Patariki Hina and Afi Mohea, in The Shaman's Hut. Shaman Amanaki first appears in the Shipwrecked and Single story at the Creepy Hollow, when Chief Fangaloka sends the protagonist there to meet the shaman and ask permission to enter The Forbidden Village. Shaman Amanaki says that no one may enter, lest the curse overtake them all. The protagonist asks if the curse effects him/her too, to which the shaman replies that the volcano's wrath effects outlanders too and that no one is safe until the stolen idol is returned to the temple. The protagonist realises Spaulding is the idol and may enter the abandoned village if he/she returns with it.
After the protagonist returns with Spaulding to the Creepy Hollow, Shaman Amanaki tells him/her that to enter The Forbidden Village, he/she must travel to The Crossroads and pass by the jaguar, Mata. He says that Mata means "the eye", for she is ever watchful and no one slips by her. He also says that the protagonist must charm Mata with a leaf of the nepeta plant, which grows on the Creepy Hollow.
Near the end of the story, Shaman Amanaki shows up at The House of Tuzu and tells the protagonist he/she has the power to choose Professor Rhinehart's fate with the Staff of Tuzu. The player is given the choice either to banish Rhinehart or reward him by giving him youth, ironically by turning him into a toddler. If the latter is chosen, Shaman Amanaki will adopt Winford Rhinehart and raise him.
At the end of the story, after the protagonist saves the tribe from the disease, Amanaki appoints the protagonist as his successor and retires from his shamanic duties.
Despite the story indicating that Amanaki and Urari Tama are married, when the family is first played after the story, they are just roommates, which is most likely a mistake.
