Title:SD1-040
Bibliographic Citation:Ratu, Hilarius, Danerek, H. Stefan, Danerek, H. Stefan, Danerek, H. Stefan, Nandene, Lengu; 2015-02-02; Genre: Folk tale. Title: Roga cia waine (Roga searches for his wife). Lengu Nandene (1916-2017) tells a tale about Roga whose wife has been lost (”dead”) for seven days and nights. Lengu learned tales listened to tales as a child told by her parents Nua and Meti, and uncle Ngaji Legane. Roga’s wife has been supernaturally abducted, something called 'létu' in Palu'e and which has happened also in recent times (listen to Sebastian Sosu, ’Ware cane létu’, SD1-092). Synopsis: Roga’s wife has been gone for seven days, not seen anywhere. Roga searches for her in every village but does not find her. Until he remembers how the old people say, that if someone is dead/disappeared and not in the village, then the person has risen to the volcano, the abode of the ancestors. Roga hikes up to the volcano, speaks to somebody there, perhaps a guardian. The man explains that his wife is there, but that Roga cannot meet her. The people inside the mountain appear, and Roga sees his wife among them. She sees him too and tells him that she will return to the village after Roga has returned. She does return, with her body and clothes stinking of sulphur. While what has really happened is still a mystery, the end sentences leave us a clue: "God had called on her if I hadn’t fetched her. Because it was the ghost-witches that possessed her, I brought her back". From the second recording session with Lengu Nandene. Recorded by SD with the AT2020 mic, 2 February 2015 in the home of Bapak Ware Longge (Pui Juli). With Maria Meti, who first arranged for these recordings, and others.; digital wav file recorded at 48 khz/24 bit, eaf file; Kaipuleohone University of Hawai'i Digital Language Archive;http://hdl.handle.net/10125/38943.
