John Waiko discusses his childhood, making fire and listening to the elders discuss the fortunes of the coming day. He recalls his mother telling him that she placed him in a bilum and ran away when the Japanese invaded during the Second World War. He relates the reaction of the people to the invasion, and the role of Anglican missionaries in staying with them.
