Show Summary

A sister’s child is extraordinarily well cared for when in the house of an uncle. The children of the house may not play roughly with him as with other children, for if he should have the slightest hurt bringing blood misfortune will come to the house. His blood will bring sickness or suffering to his uncle. He must sacrifice a sheep and give the wounded child an amulet. A nephew who wounds his mother’s brother atones immediately with the sacrifice of a sheep and the gift of an amulet (10).
