Photographer's Note

This is my auntie, Apondak. She is a Dinka. She is always friendly and cares about people a lot and is always helping people. If you visit her she will be so glad to see you, she will hug you and kiss you. She is really poor. She was wearing an old torn dress so I bought her this blue dress in Rumbeck. When I came to America in 2001 I sent her my first paycheck. Apondak means _____. In the Dinka culture, girls are named after the color of the cow that is presented (sacrificed?) at her birth. All the names begin with the letter A.
