Description:First we discussed with the consultants about how they celebrate the festivals round a year. They discussed about the way they celebrate. After discussion we recorded this session as a conversation of Mina and Tok Man Baram. This discussion was proven to be much helpful for this session. With the help of the discussion they could talk about the process of celebrating the festivals in detail.
This project aims to document Baram, a seriously endangered language of Nepal, for its preservation and promotion. For this purpose, we will develop a corpus of the various texts of the Baram language and thereby prepare resources such as its sketch grammar, lexicon and ethnographic profile. To revitalize the language, we will develop Baram orthography and prepare a Baram primer to facilitate its use in basic education and literacy programmes. The audio-video recordings of the Baram database will be archived with its annotation in a website for its accessibility to linguists, ethnographers and the Baram speech community.
In this session Mina and Tok Man talk about when different festivals occur round a year in Baram culture and how they celebrate them. Apart from the process they talk about situations and impacts of the festivals.
Mrs. Mina Baram is a fluent speaker of Baram Language. She is a good story teller and contributed a number of texts for the purpose of the project.
