Audio en Tinigua. Narración de las motivaciones del viaje a la Guajira que hizo Sixto y de sus experiencias allá. Sixto estaba muy enfermo y Nubia Tobar lo llevó a Rioacha para que se recuperara. Nubia llevó a Sixto a un médico y se aseguró de su bienestar y de que estuviera fuerte para regresar a su casa en La Serranía de la Macarena.
Tinigua [ISO 639-3:tit] is the last surviving member of an independent South American Tiniguan family whose other (two?) members have disappeared without substantial documentation; with only one remaining speaker, it is now critically endangered. Additionally, the language is seriously underdocumented and underdescribed. This project aims to provide a linguistic documentation of Tinigua through work with Sixto Muñoz, its last remaining speaker. The expected outcomes of this project are a transcribed, translated and annotated audio-visual corpus of the language, a grammatical description, and a lexicon. Additionally, I aim to gather further historical and cultural data on the Tiniguan culture.

Berenice is Sixto's granddaughter. She has lived with Sixto since she was around 13 years old. She then moved on to live with a husband but still nearby Sixto's house. Nowdays she is planning to move back to Barrancón, in Guaviare, to live with her family.
