Abstract
Zwei Männer aus Bisha-ashi-teri sammeln Rindenspäne der zur Curare-Bereitung verwendeten Pflanzen. Im Dorf werden zunächst Giftpfeilspitzen aus Palmholzsplittern hergestellt, dann werden die Rindenspäne mit heißem Wasser überbrüht. Mit dem curarehaltigen Wasser werden die über einem Feuer befestigten Pfeilspitzen mehrmals bestrichen. Wenn das Wasser verdampft und das Gift an den Spitzen eingedickt ist, werden diese in einem Bambusköcher aufbewahrt.
Two men detach bark shavings from the plants used for extracting curare and bring them wrapped in leaves to the village. There arrow tips are made from palm slivers. Hot water is poured upon the shavings in a funnel made of leaves, and liquid curare drops and collects in a half gourd. The arrow tips, hardened over the fire, are smeared several times with the curare-poison. When the water has evaporated and the poison applied to the tips has become hard, the tips are put in a bamboo quiver where they will be taken out for use and inserted in the arrow-shafts.
