- step on with feet, tread on
Yening iraga dadi pemimpin patut ngemaang conto tekening masyarakat, apang ngidang ngupadi karahayuan, buka umbin sekapa, jekjek nyemingkin luung.
As a leader, we should lead by example to guide the people to ensure their prosperity, like the act of stomping the soil to ensure the yam will grow well.
Apa panakne jekjek enjekin, memene slelegang? Jan.[example 1]
What is it that a child steps on, but its mother leans against? Ladder. The steps of a ladder are called ‘panak jan’, the children of the ladder. So the ladder itself can be considered the mother of the steps.
- Fred Eiseman Jr - Proverbs, 1987
