This chapter discusses the teaching of Tooy on the Luangu and Pumbu language and rituals. Tooy has observed that Luangu and Pumbu songs are often performed incorrectly by young people. He explained that the Luangu songs are for the dead while the Pumbu belongs to Bendiwata, Kaasi's village and that's the only place Pumbu is played.
