Everyday People PNG: Yatei Sila

I am the oldest person on Kwato Island in Milne Bay Province.

I was born in 1943, when the war was in Alotau.

I was born on Kwato Mission, box 14, Samarai.

I ring the bell every Sunday for the main service. I’ve been doing that since 1952.

I am also an artist.

Though I am 77 years old, I still chop firewood, cut grass and I also go fishing in the night.
