Description:Traditional story about two brothers called Qatgarẽ and Esdagarẽ who go shooting together. Unbeknownst to Qatgarẽ; his younger brother dies and he goes shooting with his spirit. When Esdagarẽ cooked his fish it remained raw, so Qatgarẽ realised that he was a ghost. The ghost invited the Qatgarẽ to dance with the other ghosts and showed him how to trick them that he was a ghost too. They could smell that he wasn't a ghost but he managed to trick them. When they finally realised, they chased him, but he just managed to get away. (Variation of JTF on item CH1-200202-A.) Transcribed, but not time-aligned, translated or glossed.Traditional story about two brothers called Qatgarẽ and Esdagarẽ who go shooting together.
