The team unites linguists and anthropologists from both Cameroon and Germany and includes:
Prof. Roland Kießling (PI, Hamburg), Dr. Evelyn Fogwe (PI, Buea), Dr. Pius Akumbu (Buea), Dr. Robert Akoko (Buea), Emmanuel Tabah, M.A. (Buea), Jude Nformi Awasom, M.A. (Buea), Viktoria Kempf, M.A. (Hamburg), Pamela Sama B.A. (Buea).

Essential for the work of the project is the help and assistence from the Bezen community. Among them, Arama Fidelis and Christopher Kunatu have been reliable collaborators. Many other Bezen residents contributed shelter, food and water, but also tales, riddles and stories. We are grateful for your support!
