Papapana speakers in Teperoi and the villages Peuni, Koikoi, Maras, Barora and Iraka. The Papapana speech community originates in the village of Teperoi but is currently also located in five other villages north and south of Teperoi: Peuni, Koikoi, Maras, Barora and Iraka. Peuni, Barora and Iraka villages are each situated in one clearing. Maras consists of seven sites situated north and south of the Maras bridge, and both east and west of the highway. Koikoi consists of six sites; one is north of a river on the west side of the highway, three more are situated south of the river along the west side of the highway, while two are south of the river but to the east of the highway, next to the beach. Teperoi itself is spread out along a narrow track of roughly 1.5 kilometres running adjacent to the shoreline. The first few settlements along this track are considered by community members to be Makomako village. Access to Teperoi proper is only possible through Makomako and there is no clear divide between the two. The track ends in a large clearing which is the centre of Teperoi. Beyond this there is a smaller track leading to the Teperoi Primary School site.
