Description:Genre: Medicine/huru: Teresia Nona, kampong Wolo Habi, desa Maluriwu, tells about huru welu ('huru' kemiri). No curse. The cure to the symptom 'huru welu' – eyes protrude and fall out, blindness – uses only chewed areca nut and piper betel (sirih pinang) which is applied to around the eyes. Nona also rolls ('lege') around an egg five times (around the eye(s)?) and orders the disease to go west, in a kind of prayer,; 'bhulu wa'o'. Recorded by Ebbe (Pidhu) at Nona's home late in the Sunday afternoon 1 Nov -15 with the AT Lavelier microphone. Present were also grandchildren (?) Virsen, Belfas and Wera. Nona also told two fairy tales on the same occasion.
