Description:One .wav file, with accompanying .eaf annotation file. María Luísa Garcerán Álvarez narrates the story of Mãshãrũnẽ xawewu puyexkedi, about the time that the Jaguar twisted the Tortoises' arms. The Tortoises are playing on a swing in the forest when a Jaguar comes and wants to play. They trick him and push him into a spiky huicungo palm (Astrocaryum huicungo). He dies and they feast on his body. Later, Jaguar's brother comes along and, seeing his brother's footprints, suspects the Tortoises of killing him. He cuts off their feet and twists their arms, explaining why tortoises look the way they do. This traditional narrative was volunteered by the speaker and performed extemporaneously.
