Chapter XVI (continued)

Thus Marama was chosen chief of Afareaitu, and became head of that district as well as of those he had inherited and those he had conquered. In the meanwhile Terai tua of Nuurua becoming conscious of his mistake, had called his people to carry him to Afareaitu, but on the way learned that his place had been taken, and he too bowed his head to the choice.

The last step in Marama’s supremacy was the marriage of his son to Terai tua’s daughter, which brought Nuurua into the family, and gave the Maramas nearly the whole island.
