Hrusso Aka Community
Huluguvo, Buragaon, West Kameng, Arunachal Pradesh
Project: ‘Seasons of life: birds, plants and people through the year.’
Anu Jebisow has documented Hrusso speakers’ traditional ecological knowledge about annual cyclical events, such as crop cultivation and harvesting, and their relationships to changing features of the environment such as songbird calls or the blooming of wildflowers signalling a change in season. She has further collected traditional Hrussu stories, songs and mythological narratives. All of her audio/video files are accompanied by a short description of the texts, and are currently being transcribed and translated in preparation for her large-scale archival deposit.
