Description:One .wav file, with accompanying .eaf annotation file. María Ramírez Ríos narrates the story of Isku ñũshĩwu ruapitsiwe, the Crested Oropendola (Psarocolius decumanus) spirit and the cannibal. In this story, a young woman takes her new husband to visit her father, who is a cannibal. Her father kills and eats her husband, and she flees back to her in-laws. She then marries her late husband's younger brother, and an identical fate befalls him. She then marries the youngest brother, who has the spirit of a Crested Oropendola. Her third husband uses wit and deception to avenge his brothers' deaths by killing his evil father-in-law. This traditional narrative was volunteered by the speaker and performed extemporaneously.
