This chapter narrates the establishment of Maasani Rule. By late 1943, much of the southeast Solomons were rumbling with discontent and political groups were forming. Nonoʻoohimae began working to establish a council for southwest ʻAreʻare. He allied with Harisimae who proved key in convincing senior men to join the new political work, and Nori and others later spoke of him as Maasina Rule's founder. Years afterward, Nonoʻoohimae dated Maasina Rule's beginning to a January 1944 meeting at his own village of Arairau. On 25 January, the work was also taken up in east ʻAreʻare, at Takataka under big men Waiparo and Puahanikeni and Headman Aruhane.

Keywords:   Maasani Rule, Nonoʻoohimae, ʻAreʻare, Takataka, Waiparo, Puahanikeni, Aruhane
