dc.description This woman is making thatch from fronds of the common thatch palm (Calamus castaneus). She first flips all the leaflets on each frond to the same side of the stem, so water will all drip in the same direction. For thatching lean-to shelters, she will then make shingles of three fronds, two facing in one direction and one in the other.
