Eku (Wake) of Sabani


Historically cleyera was used as the substance. However, today it is difficult to find the materials because it has to be long enough to grind a Eku out.
Eku is not only used as a paddle, but also rudder for the skipper called "Tumunui". The unique figure and shape of the Eku are well-adapted to this operation.
