Description:In the recording, the speaker recounts what an old woman once told him about her encounter with a lisepsep: When she was a young girl, there used to live a female lisepsep in the bush. This lisepsep went to look for shellfish at the sea and she put her newborn baby under a cycad to wait for her there. When some women and girls, among them the witness, went to the bush to collect edible leaves, they saw the baby under the cycad. To their horror, the newborn child could already speak and he pleaded for them not to harm him, his mother would be back shortly. Terrified, the women ran back to the village. The men of the village gathered and set out to find the child. But when they arrived at the cycad, the mother had already taken the child and flown away.
