DescriptionThe project to Document aspects of Bati language and oral traditions is an original idea of Dr Emmanuel-Moselly Makasso, who had initially surveyed the Bati speech area as part of a pilot research project granted by the Ministry of Scientific Research and Technological Innovation of the Republic of Cameroon. Based on the results of this pilot research which have revealed a situation of critical endangerment of Bati language and ancestral practices, the idea to submit a major documentation project to ELDP has matured. The project has eventually been submitted during the 2015 funding round with Dr Emmanuel Ngué Um as Principal Investigator, and Dr Emmanuel-Moselly Makasso as co-applicant. The project started in October 1st, 2015, and will run till the 30th of September in 2018.
DescriptionThe main language used during discussion about the conflict over Mbombole is Basaa language. This is justified by the presence and active participation in the interaction of the Principal investigator who is a speaker of Basaa without bein fluent in Kelleng. When Kelleng speakers address each other, they casually resort to Kelleng and sometimes to French.
DescriptionThis session deals with issues relating to the community life in the Bati Canton. Recording takes place in Chief Bikoko's courtyard, in front of his priestly hut. The main topic under discussion during the interaction is the conflict over Mbombole between the catholic church and some Mbombog of the Bati-Mpoo-Basaa cultural group.
DescriptionBikoko is the ruling Chief in Nyambat. He is also a paramount traditional priest and custodian. Over the course of his initiation, he has been empowered with the highest attributes in the Bati-Mpoo-Basaa religion and priesthood. In this capacity, he is believed to have healing and divination powers. Chief Bikoko is also a catholic and active parish deweller at the Nyanon catholic parish. This status as active christian may justify his stance towards the conflict over Mbombole, which stance is biaised towards the catholic church.
DescriptionThe interaction is articulated into two phases. During phase one, the Principal investigator interrogates Chief Bikoko about the conflict over Mbombole between the catholic church and some Mbombog of the Bati-Mpoo-Basaa cultural group. This first part is carried out in Basaa speech variety in order to accommodate the researcher's linguistic competence, as he is not (yet) fluent in Nyambat speech variety. Phase two of the interaction happens in both Nyambat and Kelleng speech varieties. During this phase, Mbessi Makondo a native of Kelleng prompts Chief Bikoko to anwser a number of questions relating to the ancestral life of Nyambat poeple in particular, and the Mbangele community in general.
