Description:
In this session, Chidom Jebisow from the village of Buragaon in the West Kameng district of Arunachal Pradesh is narrating the story of Mudrugoa-suĝusoa, a clan that used to reside in the hills of Moraka. The clan, as the story goes, was massacred by the Nuĝa-Nuĝu to avenge his wife Nuĝa-Nuĝum's death. Only two members of the entire clan survived, Mudruĝoa-soĝsom and Mudruĝoa-badzüm, daughter of Mudruĝoa-süĝfow. The aim of the video is to capture and preserve the rich oral traditional art of story telling of the Hrusso Aka tribe. This art serves as an important means of passing down of traditional knowledge from one generation to another, which is unforutanetly a dying practice.

Documentation and Description of the Hrusso Aka Language of Arunachal Pradesh DESCRIPTION: This is a collection of Audio, video and textual language resources in Hrusso Aka, a language spoken by about 4000 speakers in the West Kameng district of Arunachal Pradesh, India. Hrusso Aka is an interesting language because of its dissimilarities with other languages in the region. It is highly endangered due to the ongoing rapid language shift to Hindi. This collection contains various genre of natural and elicited language forms such as stories, mythology, conversations, songs, dances, word lists etc, and has been made possible by an IGS scholarship by ELDP and a long-standing collaboration between the researcher and members of the Hrusso Aka community.
In this video, Chidom is narrating a story about the Mudrugoa-suĝusoa clan that used to reside in the hills of Moraka.
