Bibliographic Citation:Anastasia Roja, Pitu Sopune (Ebbe), Danerek, H. Stefan, Danerek, H. Stefan; 2015-10-21; Genre: Myth. Title: Debha Lélu Léna. From Pitu Sopune’s (Ebbe) second recording session with Anastasia Roja, or Roja du'a, a very knowledgeable lady, rather senior of age (about 60 at the time), farmer, skilled plaiter of basketry, "white" Palu'e (albino, like her siblings and a number of other persons), and healer-clairvoyant from kampong Wolondopho, Edo (Hedho). She was recorded at her house the first time by Pitu 13 Oct 2015, from late morning until mid-afternoon. Mama Roja told several tales and 'huru' in the presence of her sister and a few other family members or neighbours, coming and going. Here, Roja tells the folk tale, or myth, Deba Lélu Léna (sometimes called "Diji"), also recorded on the previous session. Depa/Lélu/Léna is told by her mother to cook them diji, a tuber, while they are away at the plantation. Instead, she cooks them Diji, her younger sister. Infuriated over Lélu’s stupidity, the mother pours freshly boiled water over her so that she becomes red all over, and she chops her up and spreads out her body parts. But an eagle takes Lélu, or the body parts, to his nest and rescues or cures her, feeds and cares for her. In the end the humans, or Lëlu’s family, have to give the eagle chickens in exchange for the eagle not taking back Lélu with him. (as long as people keep chickens, the eagles will not steal their children?). There are several recordings of this tale from different narrators. Some interconnect with other tales, or motifs from one tale reappear in another. This recording was done directly with the H4N Zoom. (Some of Pitu’s recordings from this period were done with the AT Lavalier mic, which is a little noisier and only reaches 18 Khz. It worked fine in some situations with some speakers, with the rec level appropriately adjusted.); wav file at 48 KHz 24 bits, eaf file; Kaipuleohone University of Hawai'i Digital Language Archive;https://hdl.handle.net/10125/102453.
