    • Description: This recording consists of questions and responses from the native speakers regarding childhood and tribe life. Questions asked include: When you were a child, what was your favorite food? Did you use baby baskets? If so, who made them? Describe a typical day at school? Do you have any superstitions or taboos? Tell us about the man who carves logs with a chainsaw in Tehachapi. What did you think about our trip yesterday? Who did you see at Twin Oaks yesterday? Lucille- Tell us about how you lost and found the battery for your phone. Did the tribe have winter or summer homes, or migrate with the seasons? Do you have any stories about Bigfoot? Did you have ceremonies for birth, mourning, and coming of age? Do you still do them? What clans do you have? Were there other tribes and did you get together for celebrations? How did your tribe determine leadership? Do you have Indian names? When did the family leave the ranch at Lorraine? What did you do during the holidays (Christmas, Easter)? Was there a time that you stopped using the language? For how long and why? What do you like most about teaching the language? When you were young did the river ever flood the ranch? How are you feeling today? How was your drive to Laura's house? Did it rain at your house last night? Did you get snow this morning?
