Description:This zapal tells the story of Lare (Heron, "lare" is a generic term for any kind of water fowl including ducks) and Keleq (Frog). The story is etiological seeking to explain why water birds eat frogs and why frogs live in groups in water. Lare is offended by Keleq after he fails to respond to Lare's invitation to share food and living area; they end up enemies. The story has the further purpose of showing why it is important not to ignore one's peers and to cooperate with them as much as possible. If you don't, you risk others turning against you.
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.
