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.
