Item Summary

Title: SD1-160
Issue Date: 17 Oct 2015
Description: Genre: Medicine/huru. Bhaso Nonane, kampong Welu tethu, Uwa, tells about his 'huru pothi' (huru bottle), similar to his 'huru nau' and 'huru lekhe'. Symptoms: head ache/dizziness (BI. pusing), mentioned in the file SD1-159, 'huru pothi'. A bottle is hung in the fruiot tree as a curse to protect the crop. The cure uses an unnamed tree root, or more than one, that his parents taught him. Chewed with areca nut, piper betel and lime (unmentioned here). No 'bhulu wa'o' mentioned. All Bhaso's three 'huru' are hung in fruit trees as signs, charged with curses, that protect them (also by scaring people). The ingredients in the cure are mentioned in another file about the three 'huru': "root things" – different roots. Dig up seven root things, tina' and seven small gingers. The roots are chewed with areca nut, piper betel and lime and then the mixture is spit/put on the head of the afflicted person. This recording is short and not so detailed. Listen/read to the other two recordings of Bhaso's 'huru' as well to get a fuller picture of what is going on. Recorded by Pidu Sophune (Ebbe) in Bhaso's house 17 Oct -15, around one o'clock midday, and using the AT Lavelier mic (loud; keep volume low). Picture.
