11/52 Tuvalu – Suliana Lopati Barber

Suliana is mother to three and “Island Mum” to many more. Her house in Alton has become a second home for many of her children’s Palangi (British) friends, who come in and out as they please, eating the food and learning about Tuvaluan culture by osmosis.

I was lucky to spend a day full of kata and kai (laughter and food) with Suliana, this episode reveals some of that conversation.
