Learn to Sing Every Song

When I am a hundred I hope to pass on the wisdom of the Beymun people of central Africa. They are a small people who need to find wives from surrounding peoples.

Lean to sing every song, make endless friends.

A wave of spontaneous settlers from the highlands and the coast then came into the valley, increasing the population five-fold. Under such a dramatic event, the Aguarunas became a disadvantaged minority in their own…
