We have one, we have two, we have . . . many?

In music class this week, as we visit Venezuela, we head waaaaaay out into the Amazon rainforest to learn how to count like the Yanomami, indigenous people who live along the border between Venezuela and Brazil. The Yanomami have the number one (moni) and two (polakae) but beyond that, everything is “many.” When your numbers stop before 3, how would you imagine you count to ten?
