Description:13 minute long video recording, with ripped audio file and time-aligned transcription. In this video John Kris tells a traditional story. Recorded in Jessica's house, with John Kris facing away from Awe, towards the village, with the beach to their left and the road to their right.
Village name: Chalapan. Kris's parents are Hinduwan (mother) and Lopwar (father). Kristine Pat is his sister and Mary Clara Hinduwan is his daughter.John Kris is Jessica Cleary-Kemp's adopted uncle (mu). John Kris was born in approximately 1930 in Papitalai village, where he grew up. He learnt the Papitalai dialect of Koro as his first language, but also began learning Tok Pisin from a very young age. He had a lot of contact with the American and Australian soldiers during World War II, when they came to Los Negros. Nowadays Tok Pisin is his primary language, but he is still very fluent in Koro. He also knows a language of Kavieng.
Her village name is Hilondelis, which can be parsed as hi- 'female name prefix', lo- 'leaf', ndelis 'tropical almond'. This was the name of her paternal great-grandmother. Her father is Philip Pokisel and her paternal grandparents are Kris Pokisel and Maria Pokisel. Her siblings are Francis, Geoffrey, Lomot, and Siwa. Her children are Adrien and Philson and her husband is Steven Paura. Sylvia's late mother was from Ponam, and so she grew up with Ponam as her first language, although she grew up in Papitalai. Tok Pisin is also her first language, and her language of everyday communication. She learnt English at school and is fluent.
