Description:
This is a recording of woman beating the sago pulp. Men have been cutting and chopping the inside of the sago palm before. The pulp is carried in basket to the river because water is important in the process. Beating the pulp and washing the sago is women's work. Most recordings are observational. tci20130925CDv-02.mpeg contains an explanation of the different part of the sago making stand. tci20130925CDv-08.mpeg shows how the containers for the ready sago are woven out of sago leaves. recorded with a Canon XA 10 with a mounted shotgun microphone (Rode Videomic).
This project focuses on collecting multimedia documentation of two undescribed Papuan languages of the Morehead-Maro family: Nen (Nambu subgroup) and Kómnzo (Tonda subgroup).
