Description:One .wav file, with accompanying .eaf annotation file. María Luísa Garcerán Álvarez narrates the story of Xete ñũshĩwu, the Black Vulture spirit. After a woman's husband dies, she implores a vulture to take her to heaven to see him. The vulture spirit does so in exchange for sex. However, when the woman arrives in the afterlife, she cannot eat, drink, or even sit down, and her husband sends her home. Soon after she gets sick and dies from having had sex with the vulture spirit. This traditional narrative was volunteered by the speaker and performed extemporaneously.
