We Still Live Here--Âs Nutayuneân

Jessie and Mae

For over a century, the language of the Wampanoag tribes was not spoken. A crucial part of the tribesí culture was lost. The new documentary, "We Still Live Here--Âs Nutayuneân," tells the story of how Jessie Little Doe Baird and members of the Wôpanâak Language Reclamation Project, brought this language back to life. It's a story of reclaiming a language and also reclaiming aspects of a tribes' culture. The Wampanoags' ancestors saved the pilgrims from starvation, which is celebrated every Thanksgiving--and yet they would pay a large price. What would follow was a series of epidemics, missionary pressures, land loss and the enslavement and indenture of native children. Despite these detrimental consequences, today, the Wampanoag say loud and clear in their native language, "Âs Nutayuneân," or "We still live here."

The national PBS broadcast on Independent Lens of "We Still Live Here--Âs Nutayuneân," will be on Nov. 17, 2011. Check local listings for details.
