Description:This story was recorded by Elena Kalinina and Ol'ga Birjuk from Anna Porfir’evna Nadeina in August 2007. In 2017, Natalia Aralova transcribed this recording in ELAN and checked the transcription with Galina Ivanovna Kandakova and Daria Ivanovna Nadeina, who provided the Russian translation. Natalia Aralova glossed it and checked questions with Galina Ivanovna. In addition to the original wav-file, we archived the version with reduced noise. This recording starts with the ending of another fairy tale. We don't know if the beginning of this tale was recorded or not. The fairy tale is about two sisters. In the end, one sister cuts the second one into little pieces and turns these pieces into various insects, amphibians and reptiles. Further, Anna Porfir’evna tells about various ways to treat insect bites and other injuries. See the next parts of it in the session “Grandmother’s dogs // Бабушкины собаки” and “Urine therapy // Лечение мочой”. // Этот текст был записан Е. Калининой и О. Бирюк от Анны Порфирьевны Надеиной в августе 2007 года. Запись начинается окончанием сказки о двух сестрах, одна из которых изрубила другую, а из получившихся кусочков образовались разные насекомые и пресмыкающиеся. Далее Анна Порфирьевна описывает, как негидальцы традиционно лечили укусы насекомых и другие повреждения. Продолжение рассказа про традиционные способы лечения см. в разделах «Grandmother’s dogs // Бабушкины собаки» и «Urine therapy // Лечение мочой».
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.
