View a video of MalakMalak women speaking in their native endangered language.
This video contains three short segments of MalakMalak women speaking in their native endangered language. First, there is an excerpt from a narrative about a Blue-Tounge Lizard, then a short sequence about catching a shart, followed by a short narrative about the pigmy goose. The project is led by Lenore Grenoble of the University of Chicago and is part of the NSF- and NEH-funded Documenting Endangered Languages program. Researcher Dorothea Hoffmann is assisting the project.
