Lotud word-collection group

A RWC workshop organized by the Suang Lotud community was held near Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia September 18-29, 2013. It was not the ideal time to hold the workshop, as many Lotud speakers were unavailable, but it was the only time that would work for certain key participants.
