Item Summary

Title: SD1-017
Issue Date: 10 Feb 2014
Description: Genre: Oral history/Legend. Title: Ware Pa'e. Franky (c. 45 yrs), 'kombi' of lakimosa family in Lei, Keli, tells the story of his ancestor Ware Pa'e (c. 1850- c. 1930) who was contemporary with Mari Longa (c. 1855-1908). He tells about the domain wars, a failed Dutch intervention, and how Keli's territory grew. Also about the main buffalo rituals and the hereditary rights involved. Recorded in the late morning 10 Feb 2014 in the home of Wongga Luthe, using the H4N Zoom's own internal condensermicrophones (at this time, one of the very first recordings, I was not satisfied with the external microphones I had). Settings were in this early period set to the minimum; 44,1 Khz/16bits. Present were I (SD, recording), Sami Vendelinus (neighbour, relative), Wongga Luthe's son "Ebbe" Pidu (guarding the two doors), and Ware (an uncle). The recorder was placed on a mini tripod on the dining table in front of Franky, sitting at one end, while I sat on the long side, facing the wall. The others sat nearby on the floor next to and behind Franky, smoking. It was a smooth and friendly session. Franky did not mix too much Indonesian into his narrative, which was in my impression open hearted and informative.
