Société de Secours (Relief Society) Activity
Here, the women are de-boning fish, to put into the saka saka. I helped clean the fish prior to it being cooked, by washing it and rubbing off some of the fins and skin. They eat a lot of fish because it is plentiful and inexpensive. Some is from rivers and some from the ocean. We see fishermen every morning in their canoes in the ocean when we go for our walks.
I tried to get a side view - so it wouldn't seem in poor taste, but this was as good as I could get - hope it's OK! These mothers do everything with their children on their backs. She is doing laundry here. Sometimes when the kids get bigger, it makes me wonder if they should be carrying their mothers! Once in a while you see a little guy walking around so bow-legged, that you wonder if they will every have legs that are straight, but then it seems to happen. I mostly wonder, if a child sleeps on the mother's back most of the day, does the child sleep at night........................?
