The Pari people 15

The Pari people, also known as Lokoro, or ”those who live behind the horizon”, numbered more than 11000 and inhabited six villages on the slopes around the hill.

The villages were, from south to west, within the three miles around the hill (in brackets the number of houses in each village): Kor (339), Angulemere (157), Wiatwo (777), Bura (448), Pucwa (214) and Pugeri (300).

The people were organized along two overlapping principles: kinship and age.
