Info

In Western Samoa, the preparation of food often begins in the lagoon just outside the family home. Here, son-in-law Alatupe Alatupe spears an eel for dinner. The family dugout outrigger canoe anchored just beyond him will serve as his transportation back to shore a short distance away. Published in Material World, page 172. The Lagavale family lives in a 720-square-foot tin-roofed open-air house with a detached cookhouse in Poutasi Village, Western Samoa.
