Brief description

This is a repository of materials related to the Eskaya community of Bohol with particular reference to the Eskayan language. Most of the materials were recorded, filmed, scanned or photographed by Piers Kelly between 2005 and 2011. Exceptions are the oral history recordings of Zoë Bedford made in 2003-2004. We are still trying to make contact with Cristina Martinez-Juan to include her important work from the early 1990s.

The Eskayan language was assigned the ISO639-3 code [esy] in 2014 however this change has not yet been reflected in the PARADISEC Ethnologue list. For the time being, the collection is labelled 'Cebuano'.

For an introduction to Eskaya history, culture and language see my dissertation at PK2-07-DISS09.
