Item Summary

Title: SD1-177
Issue Date: 18 Jun 2015
Description: Genre: Medicine/huru. Luthe Wonggane recorded in her home in the evening 18 June -15 in kampong Nara, which was also my (SD, Cawa Lunds) home at the time. The recording was done directly with the H4N because I knew had to ask questions and that the several persons present would want to add something to the other's narrations. Finally I got to record the local "healers", with all the nearby practitioners; Paulus Pidu, Veronika Punga, Meli Pisane, Sami Vendelinus. Lebi (sister) and Wongga (husband) listening. Luthe told two 'huru' that both use sirih pinang. 'Huru ndopho' uses tobacco, padi (5 grains), kencur root (BI. similar with ginger) and 'ndopho' (plant) leaves. Symptom: stomach pain, bad stomach. The chewed mixture is put on the stomach by the navel, five times. No prayer is used, she just asks that the illness disappears and does not disturb the victim anymore. My voice and Meli Pisane's, and another, are also heard.
