Documentation of Ecuadorian Secoya
This project serves the extensive documentation of the endangered Amazonian language Secoya (sey), a West Tucanoan language that is presently still spoken by around 1,000 people devided by the Ecuadorian-Peruvian border. The participatory project focuses on the Ecuadorian variety (-0.29285/-76.283317, -0.255272/-76.426636) with less than 500 speakers, producing annotated audio/video recordings on a wide range of cultural practices and genres, to be archived with ELAR and FLACSO. It will further provide a substantial electronic dictionary (Secoya-Spanish-English) with a print version and accompanying pedagogical material which will form the basis for the future elaboration of a much required practical grammar.
We do not authorize use of any images or videos from the archive without previous and explicit permission, nor may any component of the archive be used for commercial purposes.
