Item Summary

Title: SD1-199
Issue Date: 10 Nov 2015
Description: Genre: Medicine/huru. Mikael Petu, kampong pasir putih, Ropa, Lio (Ende, Flores), tells his 'huru koli'. He explains how he "huru" (protects with a curse-sign that causes disease in the transgressor) the coconut trees with lontar flowers. The victim will feel confused and get a severe headache, wander around, perhaps fall asleep outside. To cure him. Petu takes five paddy grains, and chewes them with areca-betel-lime (sirih pinang), and applies the mixture to the forehead of the patient, until five times. Then he, 'bulu wao', orders "the good to come" and "the bad to go west toward the setting sun". For 'peju', the payment, he accepts small money, ten thousand until fifty thousand IDR. The information is repeated once. The last question by Ebbe is about the permission for the public to hear his voice. 'Ngala' (Yes). Recorded by Ebbe (Pidhu Sophune) 10 Nov -15 at Ropa, with the, easily loud, AT Lavelier mic (keep the volume low, not a good recording). Portrait.
