Description:The video was recorded outside.
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)
CL and CG demonstrate a buffalobaby. The video shows two buffaloes.
IH’s first language is German. She is fluent in English and has good knowledge of Hoocąk.
CL was born in the mid 1920s (12 Dec.) in Jackson County, WI and used to be a cross country driver. CL was employed at the Hoocąk Language Division in 1993 as artist. He has been working as Hoocąk language instructor since 2006. Prior to this he was the artist of the Language Center and contributed many drawings/paintings to the teaching materials developed by the Language Center in Mauston, WI. CL acquired the language as a child and is fluent in Hoocąk. He is not a trained consultant.
CG speaks Hoocąk fluently and has assisted us several times (for dictionary work and recordings). He is our youngest consultant, and is considered to be a good speaker. CG works as Hoocąk language instructor.
