Grandma Vodka

Grandma Vodka

 *Grandma Vodka (real name unknown here) was an elder Mongolian tribeswoman (eighty at the time of the recording) who had newly immigrated to the U.S. and didn't know any English.
Her voice was used, in part, for constructing Ewokese.  Ben Burtt recorded her voice, 
"a raspy high-pitched voice" using the distinct obscure Chinese dialect of her native tongue, while she was telling tales of her childhood.  It was the sounds created by that dialect that were incorporated into the Ewok language.

*an affectionate nickname

Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi~1983 - Ewok language, mostly for Wicket W. Warrick
