Description:Uriamey and the kids on a lazy morning at Tombakopa
The Meakambut are semi-nomadic hunter-gatherers, numbering about 60, moving between camps and rock shelters in their mountainous territory in East Sepik Province in Papua New Guinea. As one of very few semi-nomadic groups in Melanesia, they are key for understanding the (socio)linguistic situation which would have prevailed before agriculture. Apart from basic word-lists there has been no prior research on the language. Using observational filming to supplement basic linguistic and ethnographic documentation, this project provides audio-visual documentation and analysis of a variety of Meakambut speech practices, embedded in rich ethnographic data.
In this video Uriamey is talking to her kids, Yuam and Alpaka. It is an observational piece of a "lazy" morning, when most people are away and those who stayed on the mountain are in a resting mode. The conversation is interactive, yet nearly monologic.
