14   Cargo cult or “John Frum” cult– a local religion which started during WW II when somebody made a prophecy that richness will come. This happened quite soon when the American Army landed on the island bringing food and supplies. They left after sometime and the local people are still waiting for them to return bringing the promised richness. The cult followers gather every Friday, and after some kava drinking they sing and dance till late in the night.
