Summary expansion
Most of the photographs in the album are portraits of Philippine women of Samoki, the village in which Wilcox was formally adopted by a local family. The village residents, from Samoki and Bugnay, are portrayed as they perform their daily activities: caring for children, working in the fields, harvesting palay (unhusked rice), weaving baskets, pounding roots, probably cassava, women carrying pots and baskets in tall columns on their heads. Children are seen in their mothers' arms, and playing with other children in front of thatch houses. One photo shows little girls weaving reeds into each other's hair. In another photo, a trio of young men, wearing woven reed "capes," are shown at work in the rice fields. There is also a photo of a young American man, possibly one of Wilcox's fellow Peace Corps members, weaving on a traditional backstrap loom. The river pictured as it winds through deep valleys and canyons may be the Chico River which flows past Bontoc to Kalinga
