Abstract
Description
Genre: Medicine/huru. Simon Somba narrates one of his two 'huru', 'huru watu woko' ("stone cover/bag"). It is first a curse on coconut, orange and other fruit trees. He hangs a small bag made from coconut fibre ('nio pabhune', usually 'kunu') and inserts five small stones, the 'watu woko', inside. Then he pierces the bag with a pineapple stick (small sharp) across (up down, side to side). When somebody comes and picks fruits, steals, he will fall ill. To be cured he has to come to Simon who will cure the person, who has swollen wounds all over the body, for a fee of 100 or 200 thousand IDR (='peju'). The cure is chewed areca nut and piper betel (sirih pinang) with ginger, applied to the wounds. Recorded by Pidhu at Simon's home in kampong X, 21 Oct -15, with the AT lavelier mic that we used intermittently these months. It gets loud easily, so turn down the volume. Notes: lea. (huru watu woko. SS). Curse: five stones, fastened/hung in bag of coconut bark and pierced, crossed, with pineapple wood. Symptoms: swollen, burst/burnt skin, all over body. Cure: Chew ngiru kephe with ginger. Peju 100-200 rb. Photo: 'watu woko'.
