|Description||The materials from this collection capture natural Garifuna speech and accounts that contain information that members of the Garifuna community of Livingston, Guatemala deemed important to preserve. The primary texts entitled "Damaris Interview" and "Catatu Interview" center on midwifery and how the trade is being passed down. "US Voyages" offers two descriptions of the experience of migrating to the US. "Our Grandmother" is primarily an informal conversation among women seventy and older about motherhood and the past. Recordings from this collection were made in 2015. |
