This village was hastily abandoned when a mysterious plague struck the local tribe. The plague is no longer a problem, but painful memories still linger in the tribe's memory, so it stands as a monument to the departed.
In the Shipwrecked and Single story, Chief Fangaloka will have his people make a rudder for the raft if the protagonist fetches the sacred drums for him. After getting permission from Shaman Amanaki and taming Mata, the jaguar, the protagonist can access at The Forbidden Village. Once there, the protagonist has to open the baskets while looking for the drums and discovers three ghosts; Anaru Unutea, Poehina Vaianu and Piripi Fainga. The ghosts request for their urns to be placed at the altars. After doing so, the protagonist will find the sacred drums in the basket of the chief's hut. When he/she returns the drums to Chief Fangaloka, he will call for a celebration at Hullaba Luau.
