What does it mean to lose a language? What does it take to keep one alive?
We would like to officially announce the new protagonists and co-creators of KUSUNDA: Lil Bahadur and Hema.
Lil Bahadur is a Kusunda Shaman who lived for decades in the forest, and now lives in Pyuthan in mid-western Nepal. While he once only spoke Kusunda, he has forgotten much of it over the years after leaving the forest and adjusting to village life.
His granddaughter, Hema, has never lived the traditional Kusunda life in the forest. Yet she is proud of her roots, an avid learner of the Kusunda language and determined to stop it from falling silent.
