Lahilote, Folklore From Gorontalo

Jendela Informasi - Once upon a time there was a man named Lahilote. He was well respected. People said he had a supernatural power. He could change himself into anything. He was also able to talk to animals and trees.

Lahilote loved hunting in the jungle. One day while he was looking for some animals, he heard some noise in a lake. He carefully went to the lake. He hoped he could find some animals. Well, he was wrong! He did not see any animals in the lake. Instead, there were some beautiful girls having fun in the water.


Lahilote changed himself into a rooster. He slowly approached them. Who were the girls? Well, they were angels from the heaven. They were sisters and they occasionally went to the earth to have fun. The girls put their wings on the ground. Lahilote took one wing and went away.

All the angels had enough time in the water and they wanted to go back to the heaven. Each of them was looking for their wings. However, the youngest sister was not able to find her wings. All her sisters were ready to fly and they could not wait for her forever. Sadly, they had to leave her and flew to the sky.

The youngest sister, was sad. She kept on searching her wings. Meanwhile, Lahilote had been watching her and then he suddenly showed up in front of her.
“Why do you look so sad? What happened?” asked Lahilote.
“My name is Boilode Hulawa. I'm an angel from heaven. I lost my wings.”
“Don’t worry, I’ll help you find your wings. In the mean time, you can stay in my home until you find your wings."

Boilode Hulawa happily accepted his offer. Since then she stayed in his house. Time passed by and they began to fall in love. Later they got married and lived happily.
Lahilote had a rice barn and it was always full of rice. Lahilote was so curious why the barn was always full of rice although his wife always cooked it. So one day, while his wife was cooking, he opened the pan. He saw only one piece of rice! He was so curious! He asked his wife how it happened.

She told him that used magic to cook. Unfortunately, the magic was broken after he opened the pan. It meant that she had to cook normally.

While the angel was trying to get some rice in the barn, she found her wings! She was so happy! She immediately wore her wings and flew back to the heaven. Before she left, she told all the animals and the trees not to tell her husband that she flew to the heaven. They all agreed, except rattan tree. The tree did not want to lie.

Lahilote went home. He was looking for his wife but she was nowhere la be found. He asked the anjmals and the trees but they did not tell him. Finally, the rattan tree told him the truth. The tree even offered him help. Lahilote could climb the tree to reach the heaven in the sky.

Lahilote climbed the tree and later he arrived in the heaven. He looked for his wife and he finally found her! Lahilote begged her to stay with him on earth. He also promised that he would not lie anymore. His wife was so touched. After all she also loved him.

She agreed to live with him on earth. Then she wore her wings to fly to the earth while Lahilote would climb down the tree.

Unfortunately the rattan tree was old. The branches were decayed and they could not hold his body. Sadly, he fell down terribly. He landed on the big stone and it had his footprints.

The stone still exists in Gorontalo and it has an image of footprints. Local people believe that the footprints belong to Lahilote!

Lahilote, Cerita Rakyat Dari Gorontalo

Dahulu kala ada seorang pria bernama Lahilote. Dia sangat dihormati. Orang-orang mengatakan dia memiliki kekuatan supranatural. Dia bisa mengubah dirinya menjadi apa pun. Dia juga bisa berbicara dengan binatang dan pohon.

Lahilote suka berburu di hutan. Suatu hari ketika dia sedang mencari beberapa hewan, dia mendengar beberapa suara di sebuah danau. Dia dengan hati-hati pergi ke danau. Dia berharap dia bisa menemukan beberapa hewan. Yah, dia salah! Dia tidak melihat binatang di danau. Sebaliknya, ada beberapa gadis cantik bersenang-senang di air.

Lahilote mengubah dirinya menjadi ayam jantan. Dia perlahan mendekati mereka. Siapa gadis-gadis itu? Ya, mereka adalah bidadari dari surga. Mereka bersaudara dan sesekali mereka pergi ke bumi untuk bersenang-senang. Para gadis menaruh sayap mereka di tanah. Lahilote mengambil satu sayap dan pergi.

Semua bidadari memiliki cukup waktu di dalam air dan mereka ingin kembali ke surga. Masing-masing dari mereka mencari sayap mereka. Namun, bidadari termuda itu tidak dapat menemukan sayapnya. Semua saudara perempuannya siap untuk terbang dan mereka tidak bisa menunggunya selamanya. Sayangnya, mereka harus meninggalkannya dan terbang ke langit.

Bidadari termuda, sedih. Dia terus mencari sayapnya. Sementara itu, Lahilote telah mengawasinya dan kemudian dia tiba-tiba muncul di depannya.
“Mengapa kamu terlihat sangat sedih? Apa yang terjadi? ”Tanya Lahilote.
“Namaku Boilode Hulawa. Aku seorang bidadari dari surga. Aku kehilangan sayapku. ”
"Jangan khawatir, saya akan membantumu menemukan sayapmu. Sementara itu, kamu dapat tinggal di rumahku sampai kamu menemukan sayapmu. "

Boilode Hulawa dengan senang menerima tawarannya. Sejak itu dia tinggal di rumahnya. Waktu berlalu dan mereka mulai jatuh cinta. Kemudian mereka menikah dan hidup bahagia.

Lahilote memiliki lumbung padi dan selalu penuh dengan beras. Lahilote sangat penasaran mengapa lumbung selalu penuh dengan beras meskipun istrinya selalu memasaknya. Maka pada suatu hari, ketika istrinya sedang memasak, dia membuka panci. Dia hanya melihat sebutir beras! Dia sangat penasaran! Dia bertanya kepada istrinya bagaimana itu terjadi.

Dia memberitahunya bahwa ia menggunakan sihir untuk memasak. Sayangnya, sihir itu pudar setelah dia membuka wajan. Itu berarti dia harus memasak dengan normal.

Ketika bidadari itu mencoba mengambil beras di lumbung, dia menemukan sayapnya! Dia sangat bahagia! Dia segera memakai sayapnya dan terbang kembali ke surga. Sebelum pergi, dia memberi tahu semua hewan dan pohon untuk tidak memberi tahu suaminya bahwa dia terbang ke surga. Mereka semua setuju, kecuali pohon rotan. Pohon itu tidak mau berbohong.

Lahilote pulang ke rumah. Dia mencari istrinya tetapi dia tidak ditemukan. Dia bertanya pada hewan-hewan dan pohon-pohon tetapi mereka tidak memberitahunya. Akhirnya, pohon rotan mengatakan yang sebenarnya. Pohon itu bahkan menawarkan bantuan padanya. Lahilote bisa memanjat pohon itu untuk mencapai surga di langit.

Lahilote memanjat pohon dan kemudian dia tiba di surga. Dia mencari istrinya dan akhirnya dia menemukannya! Lahilote memohon padanya untuk tinggal bersamanya di bumi. Dia juga berjanji bahwa dia tidak akan berbohong lagi. Istrinya sangat tersentuh. Lagi pula dia juga mencintainya.

Dia setuju untuk tinggal bersamanya di bumi. Kemudian dia memakai sayapnya untuk terbang ke bumi sementara Lahilote akan memanjat pohon itu.

Sayangnya pohon rotan sudah tua. Cabang-cabangnya membusuk dan mereka tidak bisa menahan tubuhnya. Sayangnya, dia jatuh sangat keras. Dia mendarat di batu besar dan membekaskan jejak kakinya.

Batu itu masih ada di Gorontalo dan memiliki citra jejak kaki. Penduduk setempat percaya bahwa jejak kaki itu milik Lahilote!
