Item Summary

Title: SD1-276
Issue Date: 12 Jun 2015
Description: Genre: Medicine/huru: The first recording session in the Ko'a domain. Morning 12 June 2015 in Kanda's and Toji's (and Weka is Kanda's yiunger sister, c. 50 years) home. Weka tells about her 'huru lole' ('huru' name of plant) that she learned from her mother (or inherited,' daju ne'e', from grandmother). Symptoms: pain rises from below, liver, to chest. Ingredients/Cure: betel/lime, 3-5-7-9 white beans (uneven numbers), red onion, and 'lole'. 'Lole' is scraped from the plant. All ingredients are chewed together. Weka places thechewed mixture where it hurts, and ends the cure with blowing on the aching place and uttering a 'phulu ba'o' prayer telling the bad to leave and the good to stay. This 'huru' is not caused by a curse that Weka hangs in the plantation (if others do is yet a question). Recorded with the AT2020 mic on the table that we sat around. We: I, Sundu, Kanda, Toji. Very good recordings this morning. I am greatful to Sundu who understood how to speak to the people and prepared them for the recording. Relaxed and nice situation, everybody enjoyed it.
