Description:This recording was made by Elena Kalinina from Galina Ivanovna Kandakova in 2009. In 2017 Brigitte Pakendorf transcribed and analyzed it with the help of D.I. Nadeina, who provided the Russian translation. This text describes how Negidals traditionally ought to behave towards old people (one should not laugh at them or argue with them). The second topic is a taboo on washing anything while somebody is travelling. // Запись была сделана в 2009 году Е.Ю. Калининой от Г.И. Кандаковой. В тексте рассказывается об уважительном отношении негидальцев к старым людям (над ними нельзя смеяться, с ними нельзя ругаться). Вторая тема в этом тексте -- запрет на мытье чего-либо, когда кто-то из дома отправился в дорогу.
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 as a librarian and in the village "club" (the venue for all cultural activities)
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.
