The Enxet Documentation Project: Stories and Conversations on the Chaco Spring

The Endangered Language Documentation Programme (ELDP) provides grants worldwide to for the linguistic documentation of endangered language and knowledge. Grantees create multimedia collection of endangered languages. These collections are preserved and made freely available through the Endangered Languages Archive (ELAR) housed at the library of SOAS University of London.

This project is a continuation of language documentation work on the Enxet Sur language of the Paraguayan Chaco, with a focus on collection activities, hunting, and land management practices that take place during the Chaco spring, a peak period for production and procurement of traditional foods. Through a combination of group dialogues and bushwalks, this documentation will present an intergenerational perspective on the relationship between land and identity in the largely diasporic Enxet Sur community Primary investigator: John Elliott
