Also known as TAOUPITI, DOUBIT, and MATA'OHU.

"SUSANNAH" - English: Quintal's baby sister was Susannah

"TERA URA" - "sacred dance"

"MATA OHU" - "curved face"

"TAOUPITI" - Tahitian pronunciation of DOUBIT

"DOUBIT" - English: "of my two", and appropriate coming from Young, the strongest supporter of polygamy of the English.

Initially, she had been the wife of Young, then of Quintal. She was undoubtedly the woman who hacked to death one of the last of the Polynesian men, Tetahiti. She was the youngest of the adult women who initially came to the island, and was the longest-lived of the Tahitian women.
