I recently learned that Sāmoa once held the belief that the spirit of our ancestors would visit us in the form of butterflies and moths. This piece explores the idea of creating a taro patch, not as a garden, but a home for butterflies that gives our ancestors the opportunity to visit us more often with guidance and secrets.
