Pikinini blong Pentecost


My Peace Corps experience would have been great without the little ones in this video, but they made it AMAZING! I was a youth development volunteer in the village of Abwatuntora, on the island of Pentecost. Mina, Aniva, Matai and Josep lived with me on a peninsula called Lapawariri. When I took this video, I had just started learning Raga, the language of north Pentecost, so my Bislama suffered a bit. You can hear them speaking Raga behind the camera, which I had to hold, because they wouldn't talk with me behind it. Also, Matai (who is 8 years old, not 10 like her older sister Aniva) I call 'cracker' because she is a firecracker, the biggest noice maker I know!
