Description:This zapal tells the story of two orphans (kiak), Buik and Mauk, who go in search of their dead parents. They travel past the seventh mountain to the gates of the heavenly realm. They are refused entry and are forced to stay in the land of the living but are gifted chickens which bring them prosperity.
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.
