|Collection Descriptive Notes||
Recording on 22 April 1975, Stephen R. Elliott (son of Ray Elliott), speaking Spanish, prompts Martin Caba Arsicona to narrate the story (in Ixil). About half-way into the recording the two of them begin a discussion (in Spanish) of the story, while Elliott also elicits from Caba some biographical information. Notes on the box identify this consultant as "Lengyel informant #4" (from: Aldea Ilom, Municipo de Chajúl, Department of El Quiché, Guatemala).
|Collection Technical Notes||
Tape is evidently a copy made by Tom Lengyel on 8/07/78 from another copy made "by U. Chicago Language Laboratory...in 1976". It is not clear why the DMA has this copy rather than the 1976 one. WAVE file is converted to an MP3.
This collection has no playable audio.
