I thought your students might be interested in a free film screening
and discussion on November 8th that we're doing at U Penn of a film
called We Still Live Here: Âs Nutayuneân. The film documents the
successful efforts of Jessie Little Doe to study linguistics and
revive the Wampanoag language after almost complete dormancy. Would
you be willing to share this information below with students and
colleagues in the linguistics department who might be interested in
this opportunity?

Thank you!

A Film By Anne Makepeace

The Wampanoag saved the Pilgrims from starvation, and lived to regret
it. Spurred on by their celebrated linguist Jessie Little Doe Baird,
the Wampanoag of Cape Cod and Martha’s Vineyard are reviving their
language more than a century after the last native speaker died.

After the film join John Sanchez, Associate Professor of
Communications/American Indian Studies, for an audience discussion on
cultural preservation and language.
