Description:Ku Rgyamtsho tells a story about a grandfather and a grandchild. The grandfather wants to look for the place of the dead since his grandson is not able to take care of him. On th road he meets a sheep who takes him to the land of the dead. After this Ku Rgyamtsho relates how a woman with a goiter danced with the witches at night.
This man had learned all the rituals as the assistant of a priest@ who since passed away. While priests rely on the scriptures which they read during rituals@ helpers should know the rituals by heart and rely on their memory@ since they are expected to hand the priest the correct paraphernalia at the correct times and conduct appropriate movements accompanying the rituals. Thus@ this helper could recite rituals from memory.
Henriette is the primary researcher of this language documentation project. She filmed this session and took the photographs.
Pincuo is documenting his own language in this language documentation project. He was the interviewer in this recording.
This man (son of jz17) helped prepare various rituals and helped jz18 with the offering to the water spirits. He did not perform any rituals himself.
