    • Languages: Máíhĩ̵̀kì (ore), Secoya (sey)
    • Dates: 2009-2015
    • Historical information: Máíhĩ̵̀kì is a highly endangered Western Tukanoan language spoken (in 2015) by around 80 individuals primarily along the Yanayacu, Sucusari, Algodón, and Putumayo rivers in northern Peru.
      The data archived herein were collected beginning in 2006 on a fieldtrip by Christine Beier and Lev Michael to the Máíhùnà community of Sucusari. In 2009, Beier (adjunct faculty member in the UC Berkeley Department of Linguistics since 2016) and Michael (faculty member in the UC Berkeley Department of Linguistics since 2008) returned to lay the foundation for the Máíhĩ̵̀kì Project, which from 2010 through 2015 has involved the collaborative research efforts of Beier, Michael, and UC Berkeley linguistics graduate students Stephanie Farmer, Greg Finley, Kelsey Neely, Amalia Skilton (initially affiliated with Yale University), and John Sylak-Glassman, and UC Berkeley undergraduates Elizabeth Goodrich and Grace Neveu. The Máíhĩ̵̀kì Project was funded by National Science Foundation grant BCS-1065621 (PI Michael).
      Materials in this collection include those collected in solo fieldwork by Stephanie Farmer in the winter (January and February) of 2013 and the summer (July and August) of 2014, with funding from the Robert L. Oswalt Graduate Student Support Endowment for Endangered Language Documentation. Other materials in this collection were gathered by Amalia Skilton between June 2013 and June 2014 with funding from a Parker Huang Undergraduate Travel Fellowship from Yale University, and subsequently in May and June 2015.
      The Máíhĩ̵̀kì Project was carried out primarily in the community of Nueva Vida, located on the Yanayacu River. Exceptions include brief trips to the communities of Puerto Huamán, Sucusari, and San Pablo de Totolla for annual meetings of FECONAMAI (the Máíhùnà indigenous federation), and prolonged fieldtrips by Amalia Skilton to the communities of Sucusari and San Antonio del Estrecho. Sucusari is located on the Sucusari River and San Antonio del Estrecho is the major administrative center for the Peruvian portion of the Putumayo River basin.
      Stephanie Farmer was responsible, with the consultation of Lev Michael, Christine Beier, and Amalia Skilton, for prearchiving of this collection (including materials collected through September 2014) between 2013 and 2015. Amalia Skilton was responsible for the prearchiving, in September 2015, of materials collected in May and June 2015.
    • Scope and content: This collection includes primary materials (e.g., audio and video recordings), derived products (e.g., transcriptions and translations), and linguistic analyses of Máíhĩ̵̀kì produced by the Máíhĩ̵̀kì Project, which was launched in June 2010, and is currently ongoing (as of September 2015). File bundle 2013-02.141 contains an index that indicates the file bundle location of each media file and each of its associated annotation files as of September 13, 2015.

    • Languages: Ticuna (tca), Yagua (yad)
    • Dates: 2015-
    • Historical information: Ticuna is a language isolate spoken by approximately 60,000 people living in on and near the main course of the Amazon River in northern Peru, southern Colombia, and western Brazil.
      The data archived here, part of a collection under continuous development, were collected by UC Berkeley graduate student Amalia Skilton during field trips to the towns of Caballococha and Cushillococha, located in the district and province of Mariscal Ramón Castilla, Loreto, Peru. As of summer 2018, Caballococha was a multi-ethnic town of about 15,000 people in which the dominant language was Spanish. Cushillococha, located 8km overland from Caballococha, was a monoethnic Ticuna community of about 5,000 people in which the dominant language was Ticuna.
      Skilton's fieldwork between 2015 and 2017 was supported by Oswalt Grants from the Survey of California and Other Indian Languages. Fieldwork between August 1, 2017 and 2018 was supported by NSF BCS-1741571. Any opinions, findings, and conclusions or recommendations expressed in this material are those of the author(s) and do not necessarily reflect the views of the National Science Foundation.
      All file bundles consisting of recordings contain a text README file with detailed metadata.
    • Scope and content: Primary materials (e.g., audio recordings), derived products (e.g., transcriptions and translations), and analyses of Ticuna. This collection includes *only* materials derived from elicitation and texts. Some are scanned files that correspond to physical field notebooks. See collection 2018-19 for materials derived from recordings of conversations and other naturally occurring discourses. See collection 2018-20 for experimental materials.
      In order to render the language easier to type, transcriptions and some analyses are written in a ASCII practical orthography which does not have a transparent relationship to the IPA. Bundle 074 contains a guide to the practical orthography.
