Film Screening:Film Screening: We Still Live Here" ("Âs Nutayuneân")(Anne Makepeace, 2010, 82 min, USA, in English, Color, DVD) --Part of the Rights! Camera! Action! Screening series -- The Wampanoag nation of southeastern Massachusetts ensured the survival of the Pilgrims in New England, and lived to regret it. We Still Live Here (Âs Nutayuneân) tells the story of the return of the Wampanoag language, the first time a language with no native speakers for many generations has been revived in this country. Spurred on by an indomitable linguist named Jessie Little Doe, the Wampanoag are bringing their language and their culture back. Co-sponsored by the Archives for Human Rights & Documentary Arts in the David M. Rubenstein Rare Book & Manuscript Library.
