Sinebomatu is the Dobu Goddess of the afterlife. The Dobu of Melanesia believe that Sinebomatu guards the way to Bwebweso, an extinct volcano where the spirits of the dead go. Each spirit must pay a toll of betel nuts to her before they may pass. Sinebomatu’s name means “Woman of the Northeast Wind.”
