Language of Indigenous Description
DescriptionRecorded with a high-quality recorder (probably a Nagra) in Santa Isabel, Caño Komeña and Taraira in June 1991 when Stephen Hugh-Jones acted as a consultant on Brian Moser's Before Columbus, a documentary film marking the quincentenary since Columbus's arrival in the Americas. Film-makers made recordings of an interview with Loriano Valencia whose discovery of gold led to the Taraira gold rush, and of shamanic spells uttered by Francisco Nuñez during a total solar eclipse. Hugh-Jones made recordings of ethnographic material on names and feather ornaments with ritual specialist (~kubu) Ignacio Valencia.
