Description:Genre: Myth. Title: Nangge Liru (Nangge Heavens). Lengu Nande (1916-2017) tells Nangge Liru, a myth that tells of how weaving came to the earth (Palu’e). A woman from the heavens had married a man from the earth. But there is no weaving in the village and no teacher. The woman decides to go visit her parents in the sky, above Nangge Liru. She travels by way of magic, through an areca tree that grows tall until the heavens. Her husband follows, and has to pass seven extra layers to reach his wife in the heavens. There they are given all the weaving tools and spun cotton by her parents, which they bring back to earth, to weave (again). From the second recording session with Lengu Nandene. Recorded by SD with the AT2020 mic 2 February 2015 in the home of Bapak Pui and Mama Yuli. With Maria Meti and others.
