Description:One .wav file. María Ramírez Ríos narrates the story of Xuya ñũshĩwu, the Rat spirit, who teaches a woman how to give birth. A first-time mother is struggling in labor and sends her husband to fetch the traditional surgeon (pũtẽbis). While he is gone, the woman hears the cries of a litter of baby mice, and wonders aloud why she cannot give birth so easily as the rat. The Rat spirit becomes human, and swiftly coaches the woman through labor. By the time her husband arrives with the surgeon, she has already given birth, angering the surgeon, who storms off. This traditional narrative was volunteered by the speaker and performed extemporaneously.
