Gido is the mother of my bamira. I can call her ingo, sister of my mother.

All children call their mother ingó, like their aunts, elder sisters or female cousins too. Ingó are called all women of the same Ageset of their biological mother or females having the same status like their mother like married elder sisters. Mum, amma, is only used by the very smallest children.

Ingo explained to me wannit maccina warrita. That means, women are the machines of the family.
