I understand there has been at least one linguist who worked with this
population, but that the relationship between the community and the linguist
somehow soured and the community has been against anybody else coming in. I
don't know any names, mainly because I heard this from my father, who lives
in Bena, and not from an academic source. You might be able to get some
information from the owner of the general store in Bena.
