Synopsis
As Nutayunean tells the amazing story of the return of the Wampanoag language, the first time a language with no Native speakers has been revived in this country. Four centuries ago, Wampanoag people helped the first English settlers in America- the Pilgrims – to survive. Although Americans celebrate ‘the Indians’ every year at Thanksgiving, few know that their descendants are still on their homelands in Southeastern Massachusetts. Spurred on by an indomitable linguist named Jessie Little Doe, the Wampanoag are bringing their language and their culture back. (We Still Live Here website)
