211 Qaqet are currently involved in the project, or have been involved in the past (116 adults and 95 children): they participate in audio and video recordings, they transcribe and translate the recordings, they work with us on a dictionary and a grammar, they never tire of explaining their language and culture to us, they organize and host the project, and they have become colleagues and friends in the process.
