  • "Umejo iyawi" uttered by Itsautaku, storyteller and elder, recounting the traditional Wauja tale of the "Man Who Drowned in Honey," in the presence of his adolescent son Mayuri, adult daughter Mukura, and others. Recorded in Piyulaga village by E. Ireland, December 1989, transcript p. 5. In this short excerpt, a bold young woman (who has disguised herself as a man) has committed a grave sacrilege, since the mere sight of the flutes is forbidden to women, with severe penalties for infraction. Upon discovering that she has been out playing the flutes all night, her jealous husband publicly exposes her deception, and demands that she be punished.
