This item is a recent history of Fofak Bay, told by Bapak Martinus Wakaf (MW). Fofak Bay is situated on the north coast of Waigeo. In the last century, there have been three settlements located there: first Lamlam, then Paput, and finally Kapadiri. MW first explains how Lamlam was founded, and how it got its name: two men from the Fiay clan put out a big fire there using scoops (which in Ambel are called 'kelamlu'). He explains that in the 1930s, an American evangelist came to the village, and asked to stay there to teach the population about the Bible. He was sent away, and he cursed the village, so nearly everyone died. The villages set up a new village in Fofak Bay, Paput, to escape the curse. In 1951, another evangelist visited, and this time the people of Fofak Bay converted to Christianity. By this time, Paput was too small, so the villagers moved to what is now Kapadiri. MW explains who performed the opening ceremonies for the village, and lists the people who have been heads of Kapadiri since it was founded, including his own father, Bapak Markus Wakaf.
