In the United States more than 130 Native American languages are endangered. Several are on the verge of extinction with only a handful of fluent speakers.
This short documentary tells the story of Marie Wilcox, the last fluent speaker of the Wukchumni language and the dictionary she created in an effort to keep her language alive. Want to learn more? Check out the accompanying lesson plan to this film.
