Description:The story is told by Aguangjin and taped by JF using a Sony Camcorder Fdr-ax100 4k and Zoom H2N. It is in front of the village clinique, where Baoganguang (present) is a country doctor. In the same setting, both AGJ and BGG also told other stories and played pipa.
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.
This story describes the details of what to do to pray for the rain god to stop the rain. Every family in the villages was expected to contribute.
