DescriptionThe collection consists of audio and video recordings in Ch’ol, a Mayan language spoken in Mexico known to its speakers as Lakty’añ and sometimes written as Chol. Many of these audio and video recordings have been transcribed and/or translated into Spanish. Most recordings were made in 2018, though some materials in the collection were recorded in two earlier periods: the 2002 recordings of Carmelino Jiménez by Elmar Martínez and Pedro Gutiérrez and recordings made by Juan Jesús Vázquez in 2007 and 2008.
The collection as of May 2019 has
  • 191 WAV audio recordings (totaling 39 hours 48 minutes)
  • 48 MPG video recordings (totaling 2 hours 31 minutes)
  • 7 MP4 video recordings (totaling 1 hour 45 minutes)
  • 1 AVI video recording (totaling 22 minutes 30 seconds)
  • 72 XML files in the EAF format for use with the ELAN application
  • 2 JPG photographs

The creation of this collection was funded in part by a National Geographic Explorers grant.
