Description:
ENGLISH: A Trumai woman explains how the Yamurikuma festivity is celebrated. She talks about its main features and its visual aspects. The Yamurikuma festivity is an important ritual of the Upper Xingu region. ----- PORTUGUÊS: Uma mulher Trumai explica como a festa de Yamurikuma é realizada. Ela fala sobre os principais elementos da festa e sobre seus aspectos visuais. A festa de Yamurikuma é um ritual importante da região do Alto Xingu.
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.
This file was generated from an IMDI 1.9 file and transformed to IMDI 3.0. The substructure of Genre is replaced by two elements named "Genre" and "SubGenre". The original content of Genre substructure was: Interactional = '', Discursive = 'explanation', Performance = ''. These values have been added as Keys to the Content information.
A Trumai woman explains the main aspects of the Yamurikuma festivity.
The speaker talks in Trumai.
The talk is perfomed by Speaker 12.
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).
