Description:
Very short video recording, with ripped audio file. In this recording John Kris tells Jessica to make tea. Recorded in Jessica's house, with John Kris facing away from Awe, towards the village, with the beach to his left and the road to his right. The 'kitchen' is roughly over his right shoulder.
Village name: Chalapan. Kris's parents are Hinduwan (mother) and Lopwar (father). Kristine Pat is his sister and Mary Clara Hinduwan is his daughter.John Kris is Jessica Cleary-Kemp's adopted uncle (mu). John Kris was born in approximately 1930 in Papitalai village, where he grew up. He learnt the Papitalai dialect of Koro as his first language, but also began learning Tok Pisin from a very young age. He had a lot of contact with the American and Australian soldiers during World War II, when they came to Los Negros. Nowadays Tok Pisin is his primary language, but he is still very fluent in Koro. He also knows a language of Kavieng.
