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.
