Description:Elena Kalinina recorded this narrative from Daria Ivanovna Nadeina in 2008. The transcription and analysis were performed by Brigitte Pakendorf in 2017 with the help of Daria Nadeina and Ljubov' Oxlopkova. It is an anecdote about two men, one of whom fed the spirit of fire (podja) whereas the other refused to perform this ritual. The next day, the latter was found high in the mountains buried by an rockfall. // Е.Ю. Калинина записала этот текст от Д.И. Надеиной в 2008 году. Это история о двух мужчинах, один из которых покормил огонь, а другой отказался от соблюдения этого ритуала. На следующий день второй мужчина оказался высоко в горах, придавленный скалой.
This project focuses on the documentation of Negidal, a highly moribund Northern Tungusic language spoken by at most a handful of individuals on the Amgun' and Lower Amur rivers in the Russian Federation. The language comprises two dialects, Upper and Lower Negidal, of which the latter might already be extinct. The project will result primarily in an extensive corpus of interlinearized texts from the Upper dialect together with accompanying audio recordings.
Worked in the kindergarten as teacher and director, worked as a schoolteacher, in a shop, and also in the village administration. Is very active in maintaining Negidal culture and the language.
