Aaley, Uday Raj; Bodt, Timotheus Adrianus

This data set contains 5 audio files and 11 video files (2 in this part, 9 in the first part, DOI: 10.5281/zenodo.3380232) of the interviews held with the last two known Kusunda speakers from Nepal, Gyani Maiya Sen Kusunda and Kamala Khatri (Sen Kusunda), on August 8th, 2019, in Kathmandu, Nepal.

As per our knowledge, these are the first recordings of Kusunda that are available in the public domain. The recordings constitute a discussion about the future of the Kusunda language, two children’s book’s stories retold, comments on Dr. Johan Reinhard’s 1968/1969 photographs of Kusunda people, and elicitation of a verbal paradigm.
