Principal Investigator: Marie Anna Lee

The Kam minority in southwestern China was secluded for centuries and developed a unique culture. With no written form of their language, their heritage is highly endangered. This is an online archive of this heritage based on research of Marie Anna Lee, her associates, and University of the Pacific students that started in Dimen Village, Guizhou Province in 2007.
