Abstract Zwei Frauen sammeln im Buschland von Tuo auf Fenualoa Blätter von verschiedenen wildwachsenden Pflanzen. Im Dorf verpacken sie die vorher zerkleinerten Blätter zusammen mit erhitzten Steinen in Taroblättern. Nach dem Dünsten werden die Blätter mit einer Muschelschale zerkleinert.
In the bushland north of Tuo on Fenualoa (Ngasinue) two women gather leaves from some plants growing wild. In the village they heat up stones in an earth oven pit. Meanwhile they lay a wooden dish with taro leaves and then put the leaves previously harvested and now divided up on this, and place the hot stones between them, so that by adding water the leaves are stewed to a tasty dish. Finally one of the women chops the pieces of leaves with a mussel shell ready to be eaten.
