Description:Four recordings in which Kamshey Chamchang tells Wushi nai paü manphan (bird and snake story). These consist of two video and two sound files: SDM13-20111101-04_SM_JVC_Kamshey_BirdStory.mp4 SDM13-20111101-05_SM_JVC_Kamshey_BirdAndSnakeStory.mp4 SDM13-20111101-06_SM_T_Kamshey_BirdStory.wav SDM13-20111101-07_SM_T_Kamshey_BirdAndSnakeStory.wav The details of these recordings are as follows: SDM13-20111101-04_SM_JVC_Kamshey_BirdStory.mp4; Duration 4’49”; Wushi manphan (bird story) (also recorded as SDM13-20111101-06_SM_T_Kamshey_BirdStory.wav). This is a story of justice. A wumut bird bites a monkey who in his pain shakes a vine and a fruit falls on a wild boar’s den who then crashed into a banana tree that falls down frightening a bat that then enters the elephant’s trunk. In fear and pain the elephant makes a stone roll into the river and that hits the river spirit. The spirit then seeks to find the ultimate culprit, the wumut bird. Stories like this are very common in various tribal groups in Northeast India. SDM13-20111101-05_SM_JVC_Kamshey_BirdAndSnakeStory.mp4; Duration 5’13”; Wushi nai paü manphan (bird and snake story) (also recorded as SDM13-20111101-07_SM_T_Kamshey_BirdAndSnakeStory.wav) SDM13-20111101-06_SM_T_Kamshey_BirdStory.wav; Duration 4’54”; Wushi manphan (bird story) (also recorded as SDM13-20111101-04_SM_JVC_Kamshey_BirdStory.mp4) SDM13-20111101-07_SM_T_Kamshey_BirdAndSnakeStory.wav; Duration 5’55”; Wushi nai paü manphan (bird and snake story) (also recorded as SDM13-20111101-05_SM_JVC_Kamshey_BirdAndSnakeStory.mp4) This recording commences at 0’50”.
