Narratives of Chindali Life and Culture: The Chindali Language of Malawi: Volume 3
Robert Botne & Loveness Schafer
The Ndali people occupy a small area of northern Malawi and southern Tanzania. Relatively little has been published on their language, life, or culture. This volume presents short personal narratives on various aspects of the Ndali world in Malawi, as related by 16 individuals, men and women ranging in age from their late teens to early 40s. These texts constitute a representative sample from more than 30 individuals who provided nearly 50 narratives collected in 1994 by Loveness Schafer. They provide not only a glimpse of Ndali culture and life, but also a sampling of how Ndali narrative is constructed. Contents: Folk Histories of the Ndali and Sukwa Peoples; Birth of a Child; Death and Funerals; Marriage; Food and Food-Producing Activities; Music; Musical Instruments; Old and New: ‘Traditional Beliefs’, and ‘A Person Who Has Never Seen a Plane’; Folk Art: Two Folk Tales, Two Poems.
