  • Etnográfica:
    A tree which can grow to tremendous size, and which therefore has huge outcroppings at the bottom of the trunk ("gamba" in Kriol, "ikiit" in Rama) to anchor it. Has a lot of folklore connected with it. For example, each tree is said to have an "owner," and you have to talk to this owner before you do anything with the tree. The owner is thought by most to be some kind of "perri piypil," i.e., "fairy people." Can be used for dories, which will last about two years unless you cover the inside with fiberglass, which extends their use.
