Description:This narrative was recorded by Elena Kalinina and Nina Sumbatova from D.I. Nadeina in 2010. Brigitte Pakendorf transcribed and analyzed it with the help of D.I. Nadeina, who provided the Russian translation, in 2017. The text is about a Negidal game which is based on a fairy tale. In the fairy tale a demon lends a needle to a woman to repair her clothes, warning her not to lose it. Since she does, the bird-demon chased and ate up all her children but one. // Запись сделана Е.Ю. Калининой и Н.Р. Сумбатовой от Д.И. Надеиной в 2010 году. В этом тексте рассказывается об одной негидальской игре, в основе которой лежит сказка об амбане (злом духе) и иголке. Злой дух дает женщине взаймы иголку, чтобы она починила свою одежду, и предупреждает, что если она потеряет эту иголку, он съест всех ее детей. Когда она потеряла иголку, злой дух съел всех детей, кроме одного.
This project focuses on the documentation of Negidal, a highly moribund Northern Tungusic language spoken by at most a handful of individuals on the Amgun' and Lower Amur rivers in the Russian Federation. The language comprises two dialects, Upper and Lower Negidal, of which the latter might already be extinct. The project will result primarily in an extensive corpus of interlinearized texts from the Upper dialect together with accompanying audio recordings.
Worked in the kindergarten as teacher and director, worked as a schoolteacher, in a shop, and also in the village administration. Is very active in maintaining Negidal culture and the language.
