Description
Genre: Folk tale. Title: Diji. Palu'e folk tale narrated by Paula Paji (b. c. 1930s) in a room in her home, the most prominent in kampong Ndeo (village heads etc), morning 14 Feb 2014, one of my first "real" recordings on Palu'e, three tales in one session. Diji is both a human name and a name of an edible plant, a kind of wild yams, BI. suweg (I think). This tale exists in many versions. Here the eagle saves, returns to life, the dead Diji who has cooked his younger sibling Diji to feed his/hers other siblings. Later the people from the village steals back the child Diji when looking for fire up in the eagle nest. The eagle searches for Diji, destroys the roofs of people's houses. In the end the eagle is satisfied with a rooster.
