Bibliographic Citation:Joe Ware, Sophune, Pidhu (Ebbe), Danerek, H. Stefan, Danerek, H. Stefan, Ratu, Hilarius; 2015-06-23; Genre: Medicine/huru: Joe Ware, Mata mere uphill, tells in three recordings (see SD1-285-87) and a videoclip (with some demonstration and pictures too) about his notorious 'huru kora', an unusual "picking/stealing fruits and vegetables prohibition" (I don't think that only he has it). 'Huru kora' is more complicated than most other 'huru', and the symptoms too; both men and women who become affllicted will behave out of control; steal and approach the other sex without normal restraints. Ware tells here first of how he cures people from his 'huru', beginning with a 'bhulu wa'o' prayer and talking to the ancestors. He cannot tell how everything is done, because then the listeners might become afflicted. But he tells how he prepares the 'huru' when it is season. He receives direction from ancestors through dreams, where to take the 'kora' (tree) – it cannot be just any 'kora'. – both for cure and curse. Ware tells how he hangs the sign, two bamboo pipes with body structures (male and female) painted with white on them, rather voodoo-like. He throws paddy grains and speaks to the huru: if somebody comes to steal, chase after him. The ones who chase are ancestor spirits. Ancestor spirits do the chasing. Cure: patient/transgressor is told to hold an egg and then Ware’s ancestors speak to him in his dreams, and tell where to pick the kora for the cure. The ngiru curing is done until five times. After, that egg is thrown away (siko), and the patient is washed with water from young coconut, poured over his head to chill him/her. Ware uses only fresh shoot from the plant’s branches (curse and cure). He also speaks to the signs when he lowers them (deactivates), and gives paddy grains. The recording was done in the presence of a few of his family members and neighbours, and Pidhu, who was holding the camera while I handheld the H4N mic. It was a good and improvised solution. I interview, as we do in most of these 'huru' recordings.
