In a corner of Tanzania where languages are not written and oral traditions the norm, it is the accounts and stories of the elders that provide the context and histories of the items in our collections. Eager to share, elders are exposing the seeming simple, but in reality richly diverse history of the region related to customs, historic events, music, daily life, marriage, birth, death, gender roles and practices, and much more. As the older generation is passing away such interviews (and their recording and transcription) is invaluable and even crucial.
