|About Sherpa Tribal Family Tree
The source of our Language and Culture:
Around December 1989 more than 30 years ago, my father Konchhok Chhumbi Sherpa had told me, he had given interviews to most of the foreign anthropologies who wrote books about Sherpa’s. None of the Sherpa people have noted him on this. He asked me to note down our family history during this time where I had noted few. I went back to those notes recently and was unable to figure out the relations of our Sherpa people that I had once written.
This short instance of realization and my father’s word on understanding our own history has now resonated with his stories within me. I have started to talk to various individuals both old and young with enthusiasm and interest of knowing our ancestors.
I am very grateful with Pasang Gyalzen Lama who has spent so much of his time collecting family records in www.pasanggyalzen.tribalpages.com. And Ang Jangbu Thaktok, https://angjangbu.tribalpages.com/tribe I was able to gain a lot of knowledge and understand the relations of the Solu families. This has motivated me to collect family record and so I have registered recently to tribalpages to keep our ancestry records in detail here and abroad.
My belief today is what my father had visioned and told me back in 1989. It is very easy to lose our own identity in this modern and fast paced world. Language and culture always evolves around our past and if past is what we forget, we may forget the main source of our language and culture.
I, and Pasang Dawa Paldurche, (email@example.com) are currently collecting information from all sources and doing our research to connect these sources from one another to make it more accurate.
We would humbly request everyone’s help to look into this page and update if somethings have been missed as this would be very helpful to reconnect with our ancestors who we may have forgot.
