And here I will need a translation.

If it is related to the other shot, I hope it doesn't says that it was last time used in 2006.

No, it is an inscription written in Futunian language (very close to wallisian language) and it basically says that very close there is the tomb of king Fakavelikele, the first king of Futuna, describes where his seat was, who was his wife etc ... the white inscription on the bottom just says that it that the panel has been done on 2006 by kids from a local school as their project (if I am not on wrong).

Oh! Thanks again for the detailed explanation. If you don't have it written in your trip notebook you definitely have a big memory.

It is not memory ... just a very basic knowledge of the beautiful wallisian and futunian laguages :-) The dictionary is still work-in-progress, but at least something (seems to be the first wallisian-french-czech dictionary online of this size). I have lived on those beautiful islands around 7 months and it would be a shame not to learn something of the local languages :-)
