“Son of the Root” is the result of 12 months of field research in the Kulango village (Gur-Voltaic) of Nassian in Côte d’Ivoire. The author, whose Profilo Grammaticale e Vocabolario della Lingua Kulango – published by the University of Naples “L’Orientale” in 2007 – stands as the first grammatical description of the Kulango language, examines the Kulango world of natural medicine and hunting, following the story and memories of the village’s last traditional healer: Djedwa Yao Kuman, who died on 24th October, 2008 at the age of approximately 80.
In addition to an anthropological discussion of Kulango traditional medicine and hunting, the book presents a rich collection of texts in Kulango, translated into English, with more than 1400 comments in the footnotes.
