text: Anak-pu - a genna for putting aside the millet-seeds for the next year. They go to the granary and put aside the millet seeds into earthen pots. A bundle of reeds is fastened at the door of the house and one over the door at the roof. That is a sign to strangers not to enter the house. The owner can go to the fields.
