Coverage:Vanuatu
Description:In the story, a reported ancestor of the narrator went to his field to work between his yams. When he falls asleep, the yams start talking. Some of them suggest to kill the man, because otherwise he would some day kill them to eat them. However, one of the yams, with the name Tumas, explains that when a human digs out a yam, they cut off its upper part and plant back part of the root so that the plant can regrow. In humans, however, if you cut off the head, they are dead and stay dead. Thus Tumas convinces the other yams to let the man live.
