Description:The story session took place at the teacher Xia’s (Xia Fudong) home, in Jinman Village, on July 10, 2017. The team (Jingqi Fu and Tianjun Gao) were there to record stories. Present were Teacher Xia (translator), his mother-in-law, the two story tellers: Ni Wenggan and Gaodengzha, Jingqi Fu (researcher) and Tianjun Gao (technician). The working language is Mandarin Chinese and stories are told in Bani. This story is told by Niwenggan.
Lemo is considered a Northern Branch of the Bai language. It is spoken by 12,000 people in the Nujiang Valley of the Yunnan Province in China. Lemo culture and language faces a decline due to the encroachment of Lisu and Mandarin Chinese. The current project aims at working with the Language Community to document its language in its dynamic daily uses and cultural performances. It will produce a working orthography, a language learning manual, partially annotated digital audio and video materials that represent the cultural and linguistic practices, a dictionary, and a sketch grammar.
The story tells how the "rooster" tribe, a branch of Bani people have progressed throughout the history, from early days of tribalism to the current day.
