DescriptionThis collection contains audio recordings of narratives, conversations, music, and the public performance of a comedic play recorded by Dr. Colette Grinevald (then Craig) as part of her doctoral fieldwork in Jacaltenango between 1970-1973. It also includes her published dissertation "A Grammar of Jacaltec" (Craig 1977). The recordings were originally made in reel-to-reel tapes and donated to AILLA in 2005. They were then digitized and archived by AILLA in 2006. In 2020-2021, as part of the CELP-HELP project, the collection was organized and enriched with new metadata and new transcription and translation files. The team included Vernon Chow, Colette Grinevald, Jorge Emilio Rosés Labrada and the Comunidad Lingüística Popti' of the Academia de las Lenguas Mayas de Guatemala (ALMG).

The collection is organized into 9 folders with some overlap; see folder "AILLA Administrative Documents" for a document with details about collection arrangement.
