Language of Indigenous Description
DescriptionA set of interviews and ethnographic information concerning the Arutani (Uruak) Indigenous group, their history, geographic distribution and language (ISO: atx/Glottocode:arut1244).

Only the materials from the Venezuela fieldwork carried out by Rosés Labrada and Francia Medina are currently archived; materials from the Brazil fieldwork from Chacon are currently being accessioned or processed for deposit with AILLA.

The collection also includes data from Ninam (a.k.a. Shirián; ISO: shb/Glottocode: nina1238). The materials were collected as part of a Jacobs Research Funds group grant to Rosés Labrada and Chacon. Additional funding for Chacon's field trip came from the University of Brasilia.
