Description:One .wav file, with accompanying .eaf annotation file. Teresa Ramírez Saldaña narrates the story of Ĩnãwã Xadu, Grandmother Jaguar. The story begins with a woman who is married to a giant earthworm. Her mother comes to visit and kills the worm while she is cleaning. The woman becomes distressed over the death of her husband and runs into the forest calling for Grandmother Jaguar to come and eat her alive. Grandmother Jaguar's two sons hear her and decide to take her as their wife. Before they can have sex, she has to abort her pregnancy by the worm, which consists of all the creeping, crawling creatures in the world. She then becomes pregnant by the two brothers, and the baby is born. One day, the men go to the forest and the woman goes to collect fish, leaving the baby with Grandmother Jaguar. When the woman returns, she sees that Grandmother Jaguar has cooked the baby in a pot of chicha. When the two men hear their wife screaming they come back and try to kill Grandmother Jaguar, but her body is too hard. They build a huge fire and burn her, with her body cracking apart as pieces of stone that shoot off in every direction. This traditional narrative was volunteered by the speaker and performed extemporaneously.
