|| There is no trash collection service in Wantoat. We dug this hole to dispose of our non-burnable garbage.
|| Our village brother, Mutnam, enjoyed helping Danny install our kitchen sink.
|| Becca's best friend - a heavy duty wringer!
|| "These are ALLLLLL my friends!"
|| "Of all the people in the village, my village uncle, Mark, is one of my favorites."
| "One day I'll be able to sew a bilum (string bag) like my village aunt."
|| "I love going with my aunts to feed the pigs."
|| "Now that I've learned to sleep in a bilum, I can't get
enough of it."
|| "Ahhhhh... Mommy time."
|| "I love when Mommy and Daddy read to me."
