Looking from the Tahitian village you can see the Vale Levu or Chief's House of the Fijian village. The Vale Levu is usually the largest structure in the village and has four doors each with a special purpose. The front door is for commoners or servants, the two side doors are for the family of the chief and the back door by the bed is for the chief only. Anyone other than the chief found entering through that door was put to death.
