Description:Dbyangsbzang gives a very general and short explanation of how to do the offering to the water spirits.
This woman is a retired Party member. Because of her communist background@ she regarded ritual speech and Prinmi customs as superstition@ and even though people said she knew a lot@ she was hesitant to share. We asked her permission to use and archive the recordings@ which she granted@ but she did not really seem to understand what we were asking@ so we explained our research to her family and asked their permission on her behalf@ which they willingly granted.
Henriette is the primary researcher of this language documentation project. She filmed this session and took some of the photographs.
Pincuo is documenting his own language in this language documentation project. He took some of the photographs.
This speaker went along as part of the research team. He helped us connect to contacts he knew in various places and appears in several recordings. He also helped us record and took photos during various sessions.
This medical student helped us during two days of her holiday to find consultants to work with and explained our research to people from her village.
This lady helped us during the first week of our fieldwork as an intern.
