Description:This zapal tells the story of Usik (Crocodile) and Pip (Goat). In the story Crocodile stalks and grabs Goat, when the latter comes down to the river during the day to drink water. Goat manages to escape Crocodile by telling him that what Crocodile thinks is Goat's leg is in fact a log. The story instructs as to why it is important to not simply believe what you are not told; you might be tricked!
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.
Bunaq with occasional Indonesian/Malay
