Description:Rogelio tells his wife Eva the story about God and the Usebo people. The Usebo people were travelling and they had to cross a river. It was really hard to cross it. They summon a crocodile and they cross the river walking on the crocodile. The last one of the Usebo people was very naughty and he kicked the crocodile. So the crocodile bit off his foot. The others cured him, but his foot was gone, so they could not continue their journey. They drank ayahuasca and they spoke to the foot. They called the crocodile and they killed him to take out the foot. They cured him and God said that he would immortal. They continued their journey and arrived at a house where the mother of the tigers was. The Usebo people had to hide because of the tigers in the attic in pots, but they were noisy and the tigers heard them. The mother of the tigers told the tigers that the tigers were only mice. Then their spit falls down on the tigers, but because it tastes of pineapple they do not find out about the Usabo people. They second time they do find out and the tiger eats them. However, the Usebo people has left eggs and the mother of the tigers manages to save them and after a while seven children emerge from the eggs. The children kill the mother of the tiger. The children manage to escape from the tigers by tricking them.
Rogelio is the main speaker and Eva asks questions for clarification. Martine recorded the storytelling and Carmen transcribed it.
