Walking with the Waodani – Part 3 – Poison Fishing

(This is part 3 — poison fishing — in our Homeschooler Adventure Walking with the Waodani series. Click here to start the series at the beginning.)

FIRST CAME SPEAR FISHING

In our previous Homeschooler Adventurer post, Russell Winter told the story of spear fishing in the Amazon River. The post also mentioned how, during his seven-week adventure in Ecuador, a new friend had taken him spear fishing on the Salinas coast. See the lovely fish he caught there?

Russell had another interesting fishing-related experience in Ecuador. After the rest of the members of the WAO Vision Trip returned home from the jungle, Russell and Gary stayed and visited with their new Waodani friends. One of those friends invited Russell to join his family on a Waodani-style Sunday outing.

THEN CAME POISON FISHING

As Russell explains in the following video, back home in Illinois, his family typically spends their Sunday afternoons in activities like playing frisbee together or watching a movie. However, Waodani families spend their Sunday afternoons just a bit differently….

Have you heard of poison fishing? If not, you can watch Russell explain it in the clip below.

(Pardon the low resolution in the video. As explained in the previous post, although we never intended to publish our interview with Russell, he is such a great storyteller that we decided to let him tell his stories rather than write them.)
