Description:This recording was made outside. The dances were performed at a Hoocąk "festival" that was meant to introduce the Hoocąk culture to interested people.
The overall goal of the project is the documentation and preservation of the Hoocąk language. The project therefore includes the following sub-projects: (1) (audio- and video-)recording, analysing, processing and archiving a representative corpus of Hoocąk texts, (2) linguistic analysis and representation of texts that have previously been recorded by other linguists or anthropologists, (3) development of a comprehensive and linguistically consistent lexicon, (4) training of Hoocąk language instructors, (5) development of teaching material (6) further analyses (e.g. investigation of dialectal differences among Wisconsin and Nebraska Hoocąks)
The recordings shows a variety of dances performed by Hoocąks for people interested in their culture. Lance Tallmadge explained the meaning of each dance before it was performed. He also decribes the dresses. performance: Hoocąk flag song, sneak up dance, grass dance, jingle dress dance, fancy dance, green corn dance, snake dance
Hoocąk is the primary language used in the session. However, there are some sentences in English at the beginning of the text (following the greeting) that explain why the text is being produced.
