Title:A Peruvian teacher talks about the indigenous school system
Documentation of Cashinahua: Animacy and mythology in Huni Kuin (Cashinahua): a study of linguistic and cognitive categorization in a Panoan language
Description:In this session a Peruvian "mestizo" teacher is interviewed by Barbara Keifenheim about the indigenous school system. The recording was made by Barbara Keifenheim in the village of Balta in 1996.
This interdisciplinary project aims at the documentation of Cashinahua language and culture. The Cashinahua language community currently consists of about 6000 members living in several villages with 10 indigenous homelands in the Brazilian state of Acre, and about 1600 members living in 37 villages in Peru. Most members of the speech community are bilingual, either speaking Portuguese or Spanish as a second and in some cases (in Brazil) as a first language. The project is funded for the years of 2006 to 2009 by the VolkswagenStiftung in the Documentation of Endangered Languages Programme. The linguist Eliane Camargo initiated her research among the Brazilian Cashinahua in 1989 and continued to work with the Peruvian Cashinahua in 1994. The anthropologist Philippe Erikson started to work in 1985 with the Matis, another Brazilian Pano group, and in 1993 with the Chacobo, a Pano group living in Bolivia. The linguist Sabine Reiter who previously worked in another Dobes-Project started her research among the Cashinahua in 2006.
The interview is about the indigenous school system in the Peruvian Alto Purus area.
The teacher, according to Keifenheim, was not much accepted in the community of Balta. He didn't have the opportunity to learn the Cashinahua language.
The un-identified speaker is a Peruvian "mestizo" teacher who at the time of the recording was responsible for the indigenous education in the village of Balta.
The recording was originally made in 1996 with a tape recorder on a 60-min cassette (Sony60 Ux-Pro Super Energy Uniaxial, Type II (CrO2)) named "Yaminawa (Film)1". The cassette was digitalized in high quality (48kHz, 16bit) and transferred to a DVD named "Cashinahua Audiokassetten Teil III" at the MPI for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig in January 2008. On the DVD the media file is named "Yaminawa_Film_AB_stereo".
The video was originally recorded with a Sony-High8 Camera.
There is a corresponding video recording to this audio recording on cassette.
The video file needs to be adapted to the audio recording. Both seem to have been made by different recording devices, i.e. the audio recording is not the original sound of the video. Therefore the time sequences are not the same.
