Achumawi (Achomawi, Pit River) -- Palaihnihan language family -- United States: Northeastern California
From the Parlametric series of sound recordings in the Alan Lomax Collection: T5036 R12, Achumawi folktale, 1/4" wide magnetic audio tape, 7" reel, 7.5 ips, recording by unknown.
This is a recording from Alan Lomax's Parlametrics collection (http://research.culturalequity.org/ps...), which is comprised of recordings made by linguists from around the world as well as by Alan Lomax himself.
Through a collaboration with The Long Now Foundation's Rosetta Project (http://rosettaproject.org/blog/02011/...), the original reel-to-reel tapes were digitized, cataloged, and are now available through multiple online sources. The original notes that accompanied the tapes were at times incomplete, indefinite, illegible or missing. Because of this, the language in this recording may have been misidentified.
