Description:This is a version of the Bei Orel o Bei Zul zapal that is found in two other versions in this collection. This speaker uses the Tetun names for the Monkey and the Mouse, Bei Dia Karawa and Bei Dia Laho, rather than the Bunaq ones, Orel and Zul. This story is shared with the Tetun and other groups in Timor.
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.
