Description'The Weasel's Story' is one of many Kamsa tales that situate us in the days of the ancestors. This story has a humorous thrust to it, and Taita Mariano takes advantage of this potential by dramatizing the speaking voices of the deer as he solicits help from the weasel, and the weasel as she calls to the spirit helpers. As these voices are brought to life, this performance becomes a compendium of different speech genres among the Kamsa.
