At M.I.T. — THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 2011
MIT Outreach Slideshow

We had a fantastic screening at M.I.T. last Thursday night - packed hall, very diverse audience, huge enthusiasm for the film and wonderful discussion afterwards. The highlight of the Q+A was when Jessie Little Doe Baird and Norvin Richards demonstrated how to build a Wampanoag word.Their joy in the exercise was palpable, and the audience was mesmerized.

The screening was sponsored by several MIT departments: Office of Minority Education, Office of Student Activities, the Technology and Culture Forum, and the Department of Linguistics and Philosophy, and was part of the MIT Women's and Gender Studies & Women in Film and Video: New England Chicks Make Flicks film series.
Thank you to all for a fabulous night!

WE STILL LIVE HEREÂs Nutayuneân tells an astonishing story of linguistic and cultural revival among the Wampanoag of Cape Cod and Martha's Vineyard. Celebrated every Thanksgiving as "the Indians" who saved the Pilgrims, then largely forgotten, the Wampanoag are now saying loud and clear, in their Native tongue, "Âs Nutayuneân"—"We still live here." This is the first time a language with no speakers after many generations has been revived in a Native American community.
