Description:Lej narrates Frog Where Are You, the Mercer Mayers picture book, in Spanish for the collectors. The purpose of this session is to record narrative skills of bilingual children in Naha.
Lacandón Cultural Heritage is a documentation of the language and culture of the northern Lacandón(Maya), who live in the rain forest in Chiapas, the south-eastern state of Mexico. They number approximately 350 men, women and children, who have retained much of their traditional culture and religion. The project serves as a preservative measure against loss of the traditional knowledge, stories, and verbal performances that are central to Lacandón culture. It also serves as an interactive resource tool for linguists and non-linguists to access data relevant to their areas of interest, such as folklore, ethnobotany, cultural anthropology, etc.
Lej was asked to narrate Frog Where Are You, for the collectors. He is one of many children asked to do this. A Spanish version of the same story is found in Frogstory_Lej.mpg.
Spanish is the only language spoken in this session.
Lej the only contributor in this session. The only other people present are the collectors, whoi can be heard off camera asking Lej questions at the beginning of the session.
The collector of this session data is also responsbile for the collection of all of the data sessions and the whole project.
Lej is the son of KyG and the grandson of KP. As such he is also the uncle of his buddy CKD. He lives with his grandmothers and their unmarried children.
