Documentation of zapal 'folk stories' in Bunaq, a minority language of West Timor
Coverage:Indonesia
Date:2015
Description:Two volumes of zapal published in Bunaq with Indonesian translations for the use of the Bunaq Lamaknen community. The stories collected in these two volumes represents a selection of the materials archived here, from both the Schapper and the Berthe collections.
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.
