The hand (yato)

yato = hand
yatonyaue = back of hand (outside of hand)
yatonahe = palm (inside of hand)
sonyo = wrist

tila = finger; indicate; toe
natila = index finger; forefinger (finger one)
tatila = middle finger (finger two)
hatila = ring finger (finger three)
matila / tilahi = pinky finger (finger four) / little finger
yatila = thumb (finger five) / kutsila = thumb (shrimp finger, or “push finger”( kusu = push))

I’ll be adding information about counting and number hand gestures.
