2/11, # 1: This picture represents the event in which Nhamo steals Tambu's mealies, or sween for. This event shows how Nhamo does not care about Tambu's education. In fact, he purposefully does not want her to attend school. This shows how in their society, women are expected to be at home, working, and not know as much as men. Corn is sometimes symbolized as money or wealth. This corn is Tambu's wealth; her chance at an education.
