Forest Enets

Sun, nets and bears

In this short recording, an Enets speaker explains why fishing nets must not be left in the sun as it makes everything fade away. This discussion gives the speaker the opportunity to reminisce about his encounter with a bear and her cubs in the Tundra on a particularly sunny day. 

Recording: The text was recorded in Potapovo in 2010 by Andrey Shluinsky. It was transcribed by Maria Ovsjannikova with the help of Ekaterina Glibchenko and glossed by Andrey Shluinsky.
