Nen and Kómnzo: two languages of Southern New Guinea

Description:This story was offered spontaneously by an old man from Mibini (Tukau Kwaiak) where I was visiting to record the only Kómnzo speaking family in the village. Tukau speaks in Namat, the language indigenous to Mibini. He agreed to share this story with other reseachers as I do not work in Namat. But he did not want it to be shared with Nama speakers from Morehead. It is my understanding that it contains an myth decribing how the ancestor came to Mibini and settled the land.
This project focuses on collecting multimedia documentation of two undescribed Papuan languages of the Morehead-Maro family: Nen (Nambu subgroup) and Kómnzo (Tonda subgroup).
