Kabar Teman Rimpang: Tajriani Thalib

Pada awal bulan Maret, saya berada di Makassar, mengikuti pengayaan bahasa yang diselenggarakan oleh LPDP selama tiga bulan, Maret-Juni. Dua minggu mengikuti kelas tatap muka, tiba-tiba saja kabar mengenai penyebaran Covid-19 semakin meluas.

Ensaid Panjang

In Ensaid Panjang, there are 28 rooms which means 28 houses. The mothers weave from noon to late afternoon. We stayed in a special room for guests. Night falls and we all gather to listen to bekana (‘fairy tales’) from one of the grandmothers who are also trusted to guard the stairs of women and bedudu (‘speak with chants’), such as mattedze in Mandar.
