NAKAS CLAN; A'Pua

Geometric designs in red and black embroidery on the Sinsu identify the wearer’s clan. The most ornately decorated capes are known as A’Pua and are worn by the three highest ranking clan chiefs, including the queen. Triangular designs in red and black found along the top of a chief’s cape are known as Kaliana. Sinsu without the Kaliana can be worn by A Hatutu (second in line).
