Description:Ku Rgyamtsho pronounces a blessing for a Coming-of-age ritual. The coming-of-age ritual (lit. putting on trousers or putting on a skirt - adult clothes) is conducted around 13 years of age after which boys and girls would be considered adults. Blessings will be pronounced by older people on this occasion.
This man had learned all the rituals as the assistant of a priest@ who since passed away. While priests rely on the scriptures which they read during rituals@ helpers should know the rituals by heart and rely on their memory@ since they are expected to hand the priest the correct paraphernalia at the correct times and conduct appropriate movements accompanying the rituals. Thus@ this helper could recite rituals from memory.
Henriette is the primary researcher of this language documentation project. She filmed this session and took the photographs.
Pincuo is documenting his own language in this language documentation project. He audio recorded this session.
This man (son of jz17) helped prepare various rituals and helped jz18 with the offering to the water spirits. He did not perform any rituals himself.
This girl (granddaughter of jz17) helped with the calling back of a soul ritual. She did not perform any rituals herself@ but she helped with this recording.
