Abstract

Ivan says that ‘long songs’ (ut dun) were very popular in his childhood. Sad and melancholic, a long song called Bobn-Bobn-Boodzhula was even sung to female camels that had rejected their calves. During the song, camels wept and accepted their calves. In his childhood Ivan liked to tease camels by shouting teasers. He says that sometimes camels spit on naught children. Klamyks also liked horse races. A man called Ochra Lidzh, who had a large herd, always won in the local horse races in Uldyuchin.
