One of the most important Batuan painters, and also a story-teller. Worked closely with Bateson and Mead, and later with Hildred Geertz, and was also an important source of information for Adrian Vickers. Togog came from a priest's family and was trained as a ritual specialist. He did not attend school (he could only speak a few phrases in Malay, a language which H. Geertz terms as the language of the foreigners), and had little interest in Western matters, despite his involvement in making paintings to serve the tourist industry (H. Geertz 1994: 18-20, 114).
