Description:
The story was recorded indoors.
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)
Different songs collected by UW-Madison: Moccasin Song, Friends Song, Love Song, Medicine Song
Hoocąk is the primary language used in this session. However, there are some sentences in English at the beginning of the text (following the greeting) that explain why the text is being produced.
IH's first language is German. She is fluent in English and has good knowledge of Hoocąk.
