Description:This zapal tells the story of Zon (Wild Pig) and Zap (Dog) and how they go in search of humans. In it Wild Pig ends up being shot and slashed by a hunter, while Dog keeps a safe distance. The story is etiological in that it explains why these animals are afraid of humans. At the same time, it makes clear that dogs have more knowledge and understanding of human ways than other animals. The first part of this recording was done during a downpour of rain, which can be heard.
Bunaq "zapal" is an endangered form of fairy tale-like folk story traditionally told in the family group at night before going to sleep. With the arrival of electricity and television in Bunaq villages, the traditional night time forum for telling "zapal" has been lost. As a result, children know little or nothing of this aspect of Bunaq culture; only elderly community members and some adults know individual tales from the vast canon of "zapal" that the Bunaq once had. The "zapal" encapsulate and elucidate aspects of the Bunaq world view and their environment. The documentation of "zapal" therefores provide an unique perspective on the traditional livelihoods and beliefs of the Bunaq for researchers.
