Description:One .wav file, with accompanying .eaf annotation file. Pascual Gómez Flores narrates the story of Riwi ñũshĩwu, the Dove spirit. While gathering achiote, a man implores a dove to become human and be his wife. She complies, and they have a child. The dove spirit frequently goes to the river to play with her cousins, but does not bring her husband. One day her husband follows her and she puts medicine in his eyes so he can see the doves as people. They play by whipping saw grass at each other and one of the cousins cuts off the man's head. The dove spirit fixes it and takes him home, but he becomes ill and dies shortly after. This traditional narrative was volunteered by the speaker and performed extemporaneously.
