Description:The recording starts with Opa and G'ig'en chatting with Valya, tea with guests, then proceeds to babushka drum marathon, which is also on video. Lots of clipping on first song played by Apo, as she was right next to recorder, which I moved after she finished that song. Next file continues uninterrupted. Near the end is just conversation, as it has gotten dark and everyone is a bit tired.
Speaks Russian fine but infrequently. Husband was Even. Sometimes uses Even words in conversation.
Works in Institute for Advanced Teacher Training, Palana. She was born in a yaranga on the tundra.
Also fluent (listening, reading, some writing/speaking) in English and Japanese. Alutor level is elementary.
Learned Russian as 4th language starting in grad school and extensive residence in Kamchatka (1995 5mos, 1997-98 17 months). Had very good conversational skills by summer 1997 and fluent by early 1998, at least in listening. Has thick American accent. Knows a few words of Koryak for social situation.
