Video Title:
Khandu Degio on the tradition of building bamboo "spirit houses"
Description:
Koro is an endangered Tibeto-Burman language spoken in Arunachal Pradesh, India, with an estimated 600-800 speakers. Khandu Degio, a Koro speaker, describes two varieties of "spirit houses", Sukong-Grng and Mloyn-Fojo, delicate bamboo structures made during rice harvest once or twice a year. The Sukong-Grng is created to placate and subdue evil, while the Mloyn-Fojo is created to worship the deity and ensure prosperity.
