This is a recording of food taboos. Moses Marua and Marua Bai show me an eelfish ntombakwér which they have caught in the morning. The eelfish is a totem of the Mérzér Mayawa clan in Rouku and hence is not eaten and only reluctantly touched by people of this clan. Moses and Marua talk about it. recorded with a Marantz PMD 661 and a Canon G12 photocamera.
