Åmbres i ilu' gi papa' tåno' man lålala' ha'.
(Even the worms under ground are alive.)

This was said by a man who was asked how could he provide for his family of eleven children.

He was the only rice winner in the family as his wife raised the children and managed the home. But he brought home the check that fed, clothed and housed his children, whom he also put through Catholic school.

It's similar to what the Lord said about how the birds neither spin nor reap yet God the Father feeds them.

Mother Nature was a teacher to our mañaina who saw that there are resources available for those who are willing to look for them. Even the lowly worm teaches us that.


Ulo' (with glota) = worm

Ulo (without glota) = head
