Rykunov Osip - Isle Tojon Aryy Dschobulga, 1925 January, 17th.
A famous shaman is not buried in the earth. His remainings are put on a platform called "Arangas" under the open sky. Later, after the Arangas decayed and broke down the bones are raised again three times with the help of three, six or nine shamans. After completion of a rite of raising the bones one member of the shaman, which bones are raised, must die.
A red spotted and white snouted cow and a horse of the same colors is being offered then.
(The narrator used the word "sylgy" which describes only the genus of the horses without gender. In the first case the gender may not be described, too.; the jakuts word "ynach (=cow)" with the addition "suösü (=cattle)" often means the horned cattle in general. Whether I have forgotten to protocol the word "suösü" or the narrator didn´t use it in the first place cannot be reconstructed. G.K.)
