http://collections.aucklandmuseum.com/ontology/core/researcherComments CKH session 201780707 - 24098.6 – te ntabo is the name for is one. The red cut shell ornament. this is a segment of a red shell on human hair – the entire ornament is important and significant – red pendant on black string of human hair. Nowadays red plastic is cut into this shape because the shell is not commonly found anymore. The significance of red is important: Red colour is important and Luisa said that Fiji Airways put in red airport runway lights because of new night time flights, that got taken by the local people because of the importance placed on red. Red is highly sought after because it is beautiful. p.159 G.Koch "The material culture of Kiribati" 19 - 'For islanders there is something mysterious about the origin of the material for the larger specimens , which is shown by the name given to the shell fish: koikoinanti = 'small shell of the spirits'; it is found only rarely and then below water on the reefs of the outer lagoon, having apparently lost the animal inside of it...... it is usually an heirloom and those who wear one are thus able to demostrate that their ancestors were very skilled in the ruoia dances. cont.

http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/description Te ntabo. Red shell neck ornament. This is a neck ornament that features a pendant made from the shell of the koikoinanti. A single te moromoro (bead) has been placed near the perforation on the pendant where te nimwaerere (cordage of human hair and coconut husk fibre) has been threaded through. The pendant is almond shaped with a shallow convex form. The convex surface has been smoothed to show a plain area. The opposite side of the pendant is concave and shows the remains of the original interior of the shell that is slightly rough upon the surface, mostly red in colour with some natural pale brown shading. The depth of the shell material can be seen from where it has been cut into an almond shape. Te mormoro is red in colour and the neck band of te nimwaerere cosists of two cords from the shells perforation and then becomes one at the ends. It has been left unfastened. Te Ntabo would be worn around the neck by either sexes. The koikoinanti can also be referred to as 'the small shell of the spirits' and is regarded a highly valuable possesion.
