Description:
Audio in Spanish. Sixto talks about kinship to some of his relatives. Talks about the time when he re-encountered with Criterio, his brother. The last Tinigua relative who died in 2005. Sixto had lost track of his relatives for a long period of time. Around the 80's he came back to the Serranía de la Macarena and went, together with other colonos, to get Criterio and Esther (Criterio's wife), who were living in isolation somewhere in the Serranía. Esther were to die some years after the re-encounter. Criterio died around the year of 2005.
Audio en español. Sixto habla sobre su relación de parentesco a algunos familiares. Habla también de su re-encuentro con Criterio, su hermano mayor. Criterio fue el último pariente (hablante de Tinigua)vivo de Sixto. Criterio murió en 2005. Sixto había perdido contacto con sus parientes por muchos años. En los años 80s, Sixto regresa a la Serranía de la Macarena y junto con otros colonos y un indígena witoto, Sixto va en búsqueda de su hermano Criterio y de Esther (la esposa de Criterio), de quienes se sabía que vivían en aislamiento voluntario en una región de la Serranía de la Macarena. Esther moriría unos años después del re-encuentro. Los colonos dicen que murió por comer sal, o por beber mucho alcohol. Sixto dice que murió por suicidio, pues estaba muy triste de no tener a más nadie de sus parientes. Sixto dice que tomó un veneno hecho por ella misma. Criterio murió al rededor del año 2005.
Tinigua [ISO 639-3:tit] is the last surviving member of an independent South American Tiniguan family whose other (two?) members have disappeared without substantial documentation; with only one remaining speaker, it is now critically endangered. Additionally, the language is seriously underdocumented and underdescribed. This project aims to provide a linguistic documentation of Tinigua through work with Sixto Muñoz, its last remaining speaker. The expected outcomes of this project are a transcribed, translated and annotated audio-visual corpus of the language, a grammatical description, and a lexicon. Additionally, I aim to gather further historical and cultural data on the Tiniguan culture.
Speaker of Tinigua. Last speaker known of the language.
