Mother with baby

This Kwaio baby knows where food comes from. The Kwaios are a small ethnic minority living in villages by the sea and in the highlands along parts of the east coast of Malaita, one of the larger islands in Solomon islands. Many have converted to Christianity, but some have kept their old Kastoms habits. This woman is carrying a bag on her back fastened to her forehead by a cord. Her brandnew blue apron was put on for the benefit of the foreign visitors.
