Young boys were instructed from an early age in the arts of war, and in particular how to handle the swords and knives whose edges were lined with sharks' teeth. Special clothing of coconut fibre was made into suits of armour and worn on the upper body to protect combatants. The dried skin of a Puffer Fish was also worn as a helmet to protect the head, while dried shark and ray skin provided protection for other exposed parts of the body.
