Moriso Teraoka

Miyo looks after the children, house and garden. She supplements her family’s meager income by taking in laundry.

Moriso has fond memories of her cooking, particularly the sweet potatoes roasted in ashes, her special oshizushi (pressed sushi), the meringue birthday cakes, homemade root beer and the Portuguese sweet bread she learned to make at Wainaku Mill Camp.

Moriso remembers her hands always being busy.
