Title:Hoeing Field
Documenting the Sherbro Language and Culture
Contributor (researcher):Bendu, Abdulai
Coverage:Sierra Leone
Description:Filmed with GoPro Hero4 being held by a bystander as Abdulai asks questions in video, sound not great. Kamara speaks very quickly, low priority to transcribe and enter in Elan. The field is near Samu, the first big village after Seaport, home of Kongchangmaa ‘finish pass woman’, q.v. Abdulai chats with a shirtless man hoeing a very muddy field, other workers in the background. Hard to tell the purpose of the hoeing, certainly to clear the grass but what will be planted? Pepper! A fully dressed man (Abdul Kamara), the chairman approaches and takes up the conversation. Asks him about making the heaps for the pepper plants, the whole process of growing peppers.
A three-year project 2016-19 documenting the Sherbro / Bolom language and culture of Sierra Leone.
