Field Assistant, Eastern Himalaya
Tali Nabum is our youngest field assistant from Darlong Village. He has
been working with us since 2013. He has an excellent eye for
spotting animals and ripe fruits hidden in the canopy. He speaks a
variant of English language
(for e.g. digest is jagdis, reject is rejitet), which only few members of the field team comprehend. The field team at Pakke is earnestly trying to document this language that is fast being lost.
