Description:Bundles hru_1246a-1246d show a typical day in the life of women. a group of women from the village of Gijiri go to the forest early in the morning to forage for food, bring the food back home, cook and feed their families and guests. Lots of spontaneous speech is found in these videos. The event lasted about 6 hours. We have edited the videos and upload them here after they were seen and approved by the participants. These bundles are yet to be fully curated. The event is also repeated in the bundles hru_1730. This is because it was raining when we shot this event and the participants wanted to repeat it in order to obtain better recordings.
