Description:
ENGLISH: A woman talks about various past events experienced by the Trumai people. She knows about these events because her father used to tell her about them. ----- PORTUGUÊS: Uma mulher fala sobre vários eventos do passado experienciados pelo povo Trumai. Ela conhece tais fatos porque seu pai costumava contar sobre isso.
The purpose of the project is to document Trumai, a genetically isolate language spoken in Brazil. The archive consists of a collection of texts in the language, plus other kinds of materials relative to the Trumai culture, such as photos, drawings, songs, educational materials, etc.
A Trumai woman talks about historical facts related to the Trumai people.
The speaker talks in Trumai.
The speaker (Speaker12) talks in Trumai. Her listeners are her grandchildren (who sit around her) and the researcher (who is behind the camera).
Speaker12 is a native speaker of Trumai. Both her parents were Trumai. She and her brother are the last descendents of the Awaldat group, a Trumai subdivision that used to speak a different dialect of the language. However, this dialect seems to have disappeared (Speaker12's way of speaking is similar to the way of speaking of the other Trumai individuals). Her late husband was Kayabi. She lives with her son and daughter-in-law and has several grandchildren. She is middle-aged (50 or more).
Raquel is a Brazilian linguist. She has been working with the Trumai people since 1989. She has a Ph.D. in Linguistics from Rice University (Houston, Texas, U.S.A).
