MHI receives grant to preserve endangered forms of Fataluku cultural expression
One of only forty-three successful applications worldwide, MHI has received funding from the U.S. Ambassadors Fund for Cultural Preservation and the U.S. Embassy in Timor-Leste for MHI's Preservation of Endangered Forms of Fataluku Cultural Expression Project. Through audiovisual and written documentation, the Project will record the critically endangered intangible cultural heritage of the Fataluku people of Lautem. Over a twelve-month period, the Project will employ four local researchers to research and record their own culture and, where allowed by the knowledge holders, share the research and recordings with the broader community.
