|Language of Indigenous Description|
|Description||This collection contains materials pertaining to Elsa Gómez-Imbert's fieldwork and research on the Tucanoan languages of Colombia, chief among them Barasana and Tatuyo, and to a lesser extent other Indigenous languages of Colombia. Most of these materials were created by Gómez-Imbert during visits to Tucanoan communities along Caño Colorado in Colombia's Amazonas state between 1976 and 1994. Other materials were created by participants in a linguistics workshop held in Mitú, Colombia between 1988 and 1990. A very small amount of materials were created by others and given to Gómez-Imbert. |
The materials include digitized audio recordings and scanned images of photographs taken by Gómez-Imbert. A collection of negative filmstrips taken by Gómez-Imbert has been digitized and will be added to this collection.
Most of the materials in this collection are public. A small number are restricted.
The curation of this collection was made possible by a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
