Description:They two climbed the breadfruit tree. The bald one cut the bamboo for climbing. The bald one said we should carry (the bamboo) on our shoulders, bald carried in front, the blind in back. They two went and they pulled in different direction, the bald turned to the front, the blind turned to the back. They two arrived at the breadfruit tree and the bald one climbed, the blind one picked them up. The bald one picked one fruit and threw it at the back of the blind one, then they two returned to the village and they cooked (burned) their breadfruit. The next day they went to climb the coconut tree and the blind one climbed the coconut. The blind one couldn’t see and the bald one told him to cut a bunch of coconuts.
