The Atarraya

Relationship: Im/migrant
Atarraya is for fishing.
Atarraya is for fishing.

The atarraya is important for me because I like  to fish and from a long time  ago my country used the atarraya to go fishing. 
The atarraya reminds me of country Guatemala because it’s full of many lakes, rivers and  so much more.  When I look at it, it reminds me  of fishing, swimming and a happy time with my family. My father when he sees the atarraya thinks about the same thing as I do because it  reminds  him of fishing, swimming, and fishing food for my brothers, my mom and I. 
The atarraya helps me tell my story of who I am because my country is one of many countries that still has to  hunt to survive.
