Koryak Language and Culture

The learning tools on Koryak language and culture are based on audio and video recordings that Erich Kasten made between 2000 and 2014 in the Bystrinski, Tigil'ski, Karaginski and Aliutorski districts in Kamchatka. The final workup and publication of the video recordings, which total 96 hours, will take a number of years.
