Abstract Die Tubu-Frau Bila errichtet im Trockental Enneri Ogu ein Mattenzelt: Beschaffung von ergänzendem Ast- und Bindematerial, Errichtung der Pfosten, Anbinden der Querstangen, Errichten des Dachgerüstes sowie Anlegen und Befestigen der Dach- und Seitenmatten. Abbrechen des Zeltes: Abnehmen der Matten, Aufschneiden der Bindestellen des Gerüstes und Zusammenlegen der Stangen.
The mat tent is the Tubu-nomad's dwelling. The tent is built up by the woman. In the undergrowth of the Enneri Ogu the Tubu-woman Bila chops off a few branches to complete structure of the tent. To bind it she cuts off the leaves of the dum-palm tree. With the tip of a lance she digs holes for the tent poles and at the same time fits in the matching poles. The crossbars are tied on the poles. To begin with a side-part of the tent structure is set up and then part of the roof is erected. Then the second side-part follows and finally the roof is completed. After Bila has examined the structure, she puts on the mats. These are partly tied to the structure, partly pinned on with wooden pegs. On taking down the tent, the mats of the side-wall are first taken apart and rolled together, after that the roof mats follow. The binding places of the structure are cut open, the poles put together. The stretcher frame of the storage room is taken apart and as very last the poles for the water skinbag are taken down.
