Description:This zapal is one of many that deal with cruelty to orphaned children. This specific tale, however, has an etiological function. It explains that certain animals eat from the gardens of humans because their ancestors helped the three orphaned girls in times of great need. These girls promised the animals that they would repay them with food when the time came. When the girls subsequently learned to garden, the animals returned to exact their payment. And that, so it is said, why the wild pig eats maize from people's gardens, and why mice and sparrows eat the rice and millet from people's gardens.
Bunaq "zapal" is an endangered form of fairy tale-like folk story traditionally told in the family group at night before going to sleep. With the arrival of electricity and television in Bunaq villages, the traditional night time forum for telling "zapal" has been lost. As a result, children know little or nothing of this aspect of Bunaq culture; only elderly community members and some adults know individual tales from the vast canon of "zapal" that the Bunaq once had. The "zapal" encapsulate and elucidate aspects of the Bunaq world view and their environment. The documentation of "zapal" therefores provide an unique perspective on the traditional livelihoods and beliefs of the Bunaq for researchers.
