Description:This zapal tells the story of the emnity between Fire (hoto) and Water (Il, also sometimes referred in the story as Inel 'rain'). Fire and Water were laways fighting, but eventually Water won out and forced Fire into hiding. Fire hid in bamboo and in metal and in stone. This story is etiological, explaining why fire can be started using certain implements, i.e., rubbing bamboo sticks together or striking flint on steel.
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.
