Description:This project is a part of PhD dissertation fieldwork, supported by the Endangered Languages Documentation Programme (IGS00166). The dissertation itself will focus on evidentiality in the language, but the documentation aims to encompass as broad a set of linguistic and cultural practices as possible. Most interviews were carried out by native Kichwa researchers, and are therefore monolingual in Kichwa. The topics addressed cover the recent history of the Amazonian Kichwa, folktales, everyday life and ceremonies.
This is another wedding, not sure where, apart from the fact that is was "abajo" (downriver) from Nuevo Paraiso. I wasn't there, and Nilo went with Edwin. Still haven't seen the whole content, but from what I have seen, Edwin was having some proper trouble with the sound, and it might be that some recordings won't be any good because of that. Also, as we got the wireless mike, he was filming from very far away, which sometimes gives a strange impression. The bridge: Judhit Andi The groom: Jhonny Grefa Acompaniantes: Silverio Grefa, Patricia Cuvi Padrinos: Avias? Aguinda, Arosita Andi ? Padres de novia: Mariano Andy, Antonia Inmunda Padres del novio: Franklin Grefa, Berta Alvarado Berciador: Silverio Vargas Violinista: Eduardo Coquinche El que anuncia el programa: Franklin....? The content of the deposited recordings is as follows: _02 The dance (only groom's family) that takes place before the wedding - cntd indoors, it started to rain _03 Groom's family dance continued _06 Start of the programme announced over a clipping mic, "baile de las parejas"? (the bridegroom, padrino, acompaniantes) _07 The groom's family (kariparti) greets the bride's family (warmiparti) _08 Another dance & more music _09 More music, and a preparation for pedida I think _12 'Vestmienta a la novia' (the dressing of the bride) cntd _13 First dance of the bridegroom _14 First dance of the bridegroom cntd.
