The story of the revival of the language of the Wampanoag nation of southeastern, Massachusetts.
Long Description: 
The Wampanoag nation of southeastern Massachusetts ensured the survival of the first English settlers in America and lived to regret it. This programs tells the story of the return of the Wampanoag language, the first time a language with no Native speakers has been revived in this country. Spurred on by an indomitable linguist named Jessie Little Doe, the Wampanoag are bringing back their language and their culture.
