Forest Enets

Preparing fish

An audio recording of an Enets man cooking fish for his friends on a fire. While doing so, he explains how to cook it best and discusses the traditional protocol to follow. All this gives him the opportunity to reminisce about past stories involving the cooking of fish. 

Recording: The text was recorded in Potapovo in 2010 by Andrey Shluinsky, Natalya Stoynova and Maria Ovsjannikova. It was transcribed by Natalya Stoynova with the help of Gennadiy Ivanov, and glossed by Andrey Shluinsky.
