Deejuanae Lewis Bryan Wanlass, sorry that is incorrect. I read the book and it says that Volt is Tao's father and Volt had wanted to kill Tao, that is why Kala does not want to tell Tao of this.
And also the area is forbidden because Volts mother and father were killed there by wild animals which were thought to be wolf dogs. They basically think the area is cursed and wolf dogs are the demon animals.
Bryan Wanlass Because Tao's dad probably went in a forbidden area or broke a rule and was caught so no one speaks of him.
