The inhabitants of the Ngada house are protected both physically and spiritually—from the rain and wind by the multilayered, humped peak of the steeply sloping alang alang (thatch) roof, and further protected from malevolence, some by a carved male figure on the roof, others by spear-like, defensive poles atop the structure. These manifestations of the divine guard the house from above.
