AKHA & BASQUE PEOPLE

#AKHA

AKHA PEOPLE ARE A BIT EVERYWHERE IN THE HILLS OF SOUTH EAST ASIA, ORIGINALLY COMING FROM TIBET, THEY MIGRATED TO MYANMAR, YUNNAN, NORTHERN THAILAND, NORTH LAOS AND NORTH VIETNAM

(2-3 MILLION PEOPLE, AROUND 90 000 IN LAOS)

WITH DIFFERENT LOCATIONS, SUB-GROUPS AND A MULTITUDE OF DIALECTS COMING FROM A TONAL TIBETAN BURMESE (SINO-TIBETAN) YOU CAN HEAR A VARIATION OF VOCABULARY FROM A VALLEY TO ANOTHER.

ORGANIZED IN VILLAGES LOCATED IN THE HIGHLANDS, THEY SLASH AND BURN TO GROW RICE, PRACTICE HUNTING AND GATHERING, HAVE A VILLAGE CHIEF AND A SHAMAN TO ENSURE THE COMMON WELL-BEING AND TRANSMIT THEIR TRADITIONS ORALLY OVER THE GENERATIONS.

THAT IS JUST THE AKHAZAN OR “AKHA WAY”!

AKHA BASIC VOCABULARY:

  • AKHA = AKHA PEOPLE

  • AKEUH = DOG

  • AKA = CRAZY

IT’S JUST THAT IS SUPER TONAL!

SO AKAXURI, IS HALF CRAZY!

THAT IS WHY WE SAY, THE WOR(L)D IS CRAZY!

#BASQUE

BASQUE PEOPLE ORIGIN REMAINS A MYSTERY. THE ONLY THING WE KNOW IS THAT THEY MIGHT BEEN LIVING THERE (AREA IN BETWEEN FRANCE AND SPAIN) SINCE IMMEMORIAL TIMES.

DIVIDED IN 7 PROVINCES, THE ZAZPIAK BAT, MEANING « THE SEVEN (ARE) ONE ». THE INHABITANTS CALLED THE “EUSKALDUNAK” ARE THE PEOPLE SPEAKING THE EUSKARA. THE BASQUE LANGUAGE AND TERRITORY WAS BEFORE ROMAN INVASIONS MUCH MORE EXTENDED! ROMANS WERE GOOD IN THE PLAINS LUCKILY NOT IN THE HILLS!

BASQUE IS A PRE-INDO EUROPEAN LANGUAGE WHICH ORIGIN ALSO REMAIN A MYSTERY, TRANSMITTED ORALLY THERE IS ALMOST A DIALECT PER PROVINCE. LINGUAE VASCONUM PRIMITIAE IS THE FIRST PUBLICATION ENTIRELY IN BASQUE AND DATE BACK FROM THE XVITH CENTURY. IN THE LATE 60’S “EUKARA BATUA” (UNIFIED BASQUE LANGUAGE) WAS CREATED TO EASE ITS TRANSMISSION AND INSURE ITS SURVIVAL.

BASQUE PEOPLE HAVE STRONG INTEGRITY, SENSE OF COMMUNITY, A CONNECTION TO THE NATURE AND THEY ANCESTORS.DID YOU KNOW THAT BASQUE PEOPLE HAVE A SPECIFIC BLOOD GROUP AND RHESUS FACTOR?

IN BASQUE THE « C » DOES NOT EXIST, THE « X » IS USED FOR « CH » AND THEY ARE TONS OF “K”

AN IDEA OF THE GRAMMAR:

  • XURI = WHITE

  • XURI BAT = A WHITE

  • XURIA = THE WHITE

  • XURIAK = THE WHITES

BORN IN BASQUE COUNTRY, RAISED IN MANY COUNTRIES.

NOT EVEN BORN, FILOP’S WAS THE NICKNAME THAT WAS GIVEN TO ME BY MY FAMILY. THE ORIGIN OF THIS MONIKER COMES FROM THE PHYLLOXERA, THE EPIDEMIC INSECT THAT DEVASTATED THE GRAPES USED TO MAKE THE WINE, ONE OF THE “OPIUM OF THE PEOPLE”.

DID THEY BELIEVE I WOULD SPILL THE BEANS ?

CRAFTING CLOTHING, TRAVELLING, DISCOVERING HERITAGE CULTURES, SHARING PHOTOS, STORY TELLING & SCRAWLING…. DON’T CALL ME CRAZY THIS IS MY VERY OWN WAY TO BE HAPPY!

BECAUSE THAT IS THE POINT, ISN’T IT ?

YOU JUST HAVE TO FIND THE RIGHT MODUS VIVENDI, THAT WILL MAKE YOU HAPPY TO DEAL WITH THE GIVEN REALITY!
