Deposit contents The data are primarily recordings of natural conversations in everyday settings of the speakers. However, in a few cases the speakers preferred to narrate their personal stories or tribal legends. The data was collected in 2016 in different areas where the tribe lives. Some recordings were carried out in the valley towns of Chandel and Chakpikarong. Many other recordings were collected during the visits to the original hilltop villages in Sulam area (Ralruwng, Dutang) and Greenhills area (Phiran Khullen, Oklu). The collection contains audio and video data.
