Description:One .wav file, with accompanying .eaf annotation file. María Ramírez Ríos narrates the story of Aya ñũshĩwu, the Black-Capped Parakeet spirit. A black-capped parakeet transforms herself into a woman when a man asks her to become his wife. She is able to chew large quantities of corn very quickly to make chicha (maize beer) that is exceptionally sweet. She refuses to drink her own chicha until her husband insists that she do so. When she becomes drunk, she transforms back into a parakeet and flies away. This traditional narrative was volunteered by the speaker and performed extemporaneously.
