Outrigger Canoes

Many people in our village have outrigger canoes.  They are carved out of a solid log and are very light and nimble.  There are only 2 people in the village who have the skills to build them.  I went for a walk one morning and saw several men going out fishing on them.  One man showed me the mackerel that he caught that day and he told me they really put up a good fight.  Our waspapa gave Daniel and Michael a model canoe that he had made.  They love playing with it.
