Tuplet lived in the Mortlock Islands, Bougainville, Papua New Guinea, and had missed out on a high school placing and tertiary education that would have allowed him to secure a high salary paying career in life. His quest for financial security in his disadvantaged position was realized when he befriended Sopoana’ Tela, the daughter of Pakeva the Sea Goddess, who gave him two gifts; diving and fishing skills to enhance his livelihood. Sopoana’ Tela had asked him not to tell anyone of their secret friendship, but Tuplet divulged the secret whilst drunk on Christmas Day after his first trip to Kieta on Mainland Bougainville. The gifts were forfeited and Tuplet went back to Kieta on the next boat to look for a job as there were no opportunities back home. In town, he soon realized that the top paying jobs were for the professionals and highly educated personnel, so he just accepted with regret his job as a laborer and lot in life. Tuplet’s story highlights the importance of education to a better career and a better life today and should hopefully impart that message to the targeted reader group of early to mid teenage group.
