Title:Pilgrimage and procession - Peregrinaje y procesión
Lowland Chontal Documentation
Description:Unedited video of the procession of the Virgen del Rosario fiesta. Walkers arrive from a nearby hacienda, carrying a portrait of the virgen, with lots of music and prayers. The tape is full of hideous swooping, and night falls, which means that the end of it is quite dark. There are good moments, and you get the flavor.
Video sin editar sobre la celebración de la Virgen del Rosario en San Pedro Huamelula. Aquí figura la llegada de la virgen, en forma de un retrato grande que viene cargado en la espalda, a pie, por los peregrinos. Hay música y rezos. Se para la procesión en frente del panteón para desenvolver la imagen y recibirla con rezo y veladoras. La grabación es de mala calidad porque sacudí el aparato de una manera escandalosa y porque nos llegó la noche. De todos modos hay buenos momentos y se aprecia el saborcillo.
Lowland Chontal Language and Cultural Heritage: A Documentation Project in the district of Tehuantepec, Oaxaca, Mexico. The Lowland Chontal Language and Cultural Heritage Project is a three-year-documentation project (2004-2007), funded by the Volkswagen Foundation (Grant II/80 114) and hosted by the Section of Mesoamerican Studies, Archaeological Institute of the University of Hamburg. The goals of the project are both linguistic and anthropological, with principal investigators Loretta O'Connor (linguist) and Peter Kroefges (anthropologist). These goals include (1) a Chontal-English-Spanish dictionary, (2) a comprehensive description of the grammar of Lowland Chontal, (3) a documentaion of the cultural heritage of the Chontalpa, with respect to traditional subsistence activities, territorial organization, landscape interaction, as well as fiestas and ceremonies, and (4) an electronic archive of all audio and video materials and related texts. This archive includes resources from O'Connor's dissertation project at the University of California at Santa Barbara (1997-2001), and at the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics in Nijmegen (2002-2004). It also contains data of the archaeological fieldwork (2001) that formed part of the dissertation by Kroefges, and was funded by the Foundation for the Advancement of Mesoamericanist Studies, Inc. (FAMSI), Florida, and the University at Albany-SUNY. The UNESCO genereously provided additional funding in 2004.
