In conjunction with the Global Scholars Program, the Fall 2012 LSA Translation Theme Semester will host a screening of the documentary: We Still Live Here (Âs Nutayuneân)
We Still Live Here (2010) is directed by Anne Makepeace and tells a remarkable story of language revival and cultural translation by the Wampanoag of Southeastern Massachusetts. Their ancestors ensured the survival of the Pilgrims in New England, and lived to regret it. Now they are saying loud and clear in their Native tongue, Âs Nutayuneân—We Still Live Here.
A discussion of the film will follow. Movie-themed snacks will be provided!
