The curing spell for move away storms
Contributor (compiler):Bruna Franchetto
Description:The old Aitsehü performs the magic spell used to move away storms, called isilu agitoho "made to throw away thye storm". The style is formulaic, versified, with a special rythm characteristic of genres of chanted speech. Curing as well as othe "magic" spells are structured in two parts: the first one is performed using the upper Xingu Arawak language (Waura/Mehinaku), the second part is perfomed in the upper Xingu Karib Language. The first part contains the mention to the personnages and events of the related myth (the first and original performance of the curing spell by some cultural hero or creator). The second part contains the true performing formulas, directed to the patient in order to eliminate the sickness.
