Gives special reference to Epena Pedee (Saija) of the Southern Embera group.

Charles A. Mortensen began fieldwork in Colombia in 1991. He studied the Embera-Katio language for two years before completing an M.A. degree in linguistics. He returned to Colombia in 1995 and began research in Northern Embera Proper, and finished writing his research results at a grammar writing workshop in 1998.
