Description:
A traditional story told and sung by John Naviti. A boy is captured by a group of ogres. They plan to eat him but the boy catches a bird to trick them. By forcing the bird the bird to chirp, the boy has the ogres believe that sunrise is coming, and as they cannot be seen around in daylight, they abandon the boy who goes back to his parents. This a different version of the same story told by Masavia Laklotal (see bundle "A peace ceremony", ID SL1-20080424PeaceCeremony-MLnat)
