Abstract

This folktale was told by Mrs. Valentina Nikolaevna Sachgun who was born in the village Ygbo (Nogliki District) in 1935. The folktale was recorded in February 27, 2011 during my fieldwork in the village of Nogliki. Then I transcribed the folktale with the help of Mrs. Galina Ivanova Paklina, another speaker of the East-Sakhalin Dialect of Nivkh, in September 14, 2012.

When they were in Pot, ducks appeared at night and were fluttering over them and making noise while crying. They made a fire, when my friend had been making a fire they (the ducks) were fluttering over them. The ducks came down with the wings and hit on the ice of the ground and then they changed into a person. They (the ducks) changed into a person, the Caror. Then those people who are the people of water said. It is said that they have long legs and the body is short. Then, asked to my friend. “What kinds of flesh of animals do you eat in your village?” My friend answered. “We eat only the animals bouncing far away”. (and then) he took the rabbit skin on the hand and showed it to them. At the sight of the skin of a rabbit, all of the Caror jumped on the water and changed into the birds, and they flew away. In the old days, Caror is said to have lived in the water but in the land. When they killed the rabbits and were eating them, other rabbits gathered and drove out Caror. The rabbits drove out Caror into the water. That’s why Caror hate rabbits. It is said that they fear even rabbit skins because they fear rabbits. The end, the end
