Aaley, Uday Raj; Bodt, Timotheus Adrianus

This data set contains 31 audio files and 31 video files (11 in this part and 20 in part 2, DOI: 10.5281/zenodo.3380187) of the interviews held with the last two known Kusunda speakers from Nepal, Gyani Maiya Sen Kusunda and Kamala Khatri (Sen Kusunda), on August 1st, 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 wordlist elicitations as well as a narrative of how the Kusunda were forced to lead a begging life, working in India (in part 1, DOI: 10.5281/zenodo.3380187), and the different stages of life and ceremonies associated with it (in this part 2).

This research was funded by a 2,000 USD grant from the Endangered Language Fund (http://www.endangeredlanguagefund.org/), a 700 euro contribution by the European Research Council Starting Grant 715618 “Computer-Assisted Language Comparison” (http://calc.digling.org), and a total of 2,320 euros raised through crowdfunding at GoFundMe (https://www.gofundme.com/f/saving-the-kusunda-language-in-nepal). Many thanks to all generous contributors.
