Description:A talk in Melets Chulym by an ethnic Russian bilingual woman from the village of Pasechnoye, Krasnoyarsk Territory, who speaks of her life, how she used to live, that she discovered other peoples in Siberia, except for the Chulym people. She tells about her deceased relatives and friends, about how and when she speaks Chulym Turkic. Many villagers do not want to speak it, they respond in Russian. Her fellow villagers ask her for certain words and phrases in the Chulym language. Her parents did not speak Chulym and did not tell fairy tales. Tales were told by old women. She also tells how she worked on the collective farm and got a house from it, also what she plants in the garden. Kapitolina Petrovna Sergeyeva, an ethnic Russian, was born in 1936 in the village of Kogtenevo. At the beginning of 1940s, the family moved to Staro-Amocheevo, and then to Pasechnoye. From her early years she worked in the former collective farm New Life, first in the fields and meadows, then as a milkmaid in the same collective farm. Kapitolina Petrovna is a mother of eight children, has eighteen grandchildren and twelve great-grandchildren. Villagers love and respect her. Since her childhood she is bilingual. She learned the Melets Chulym on the streets of her village. She claims it was easier for her to speak Melets Chulym than Russian when she was very young. Her husband was a Melets Chulym Turk. They spoke Melets Chulym at home. Her children understand the language, but rarely speak it. In this recording she speaks on how people hunt, what they use in it, what animals are in the woods.
