Description:This zapal tells the story of a man who captures one of seven cockatoos. When he pulls out her wing feathers, she turns into a beautiful woman; they marry and have children. When the children discover their mother's wing feathers, she seizes them and returns back to her home in the heavens. The father and the children go in search of her, travelling to the sky by means of a matchbox bean tree.
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.
