Amelle’ Bungsud – Gathering at a Tuna Fishtrap

Amelle’ refers to the gathering of many small fishing vessels around a catch of fish as the white-fronted sea eagle (belle’) does. A school of tuna swam into three different permanent fish traps one afternoon, but managed to escape before the local fishermen could close the trap.  Mura-murahan pagbalik aku amelle’ aniya’ na patta’ku saga daing sobad mareyom pokot.
