We Still Live Here - As Nutayunean

Admission: Free

The Wampanoag nation of southeastern Massachusetts ensured the survival of the first English settlers in America, 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 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.

The Independent Television Service (ITVS), KOCE-TV (PBS) and Soka University of America are pleased to announce the third year of the Community Cinema series, which begins in September 2011. The largest public interest outreach program in public or commercial television, Community Cinema features a sneak peek of nine documentaries set to broadcast on the award-winning PBS series Independent Lens. Community Cinema, in partnership with the Humanities Program and Student Affairs, screens films monthly from September through May.

After the screenings, Community Cinema features panel discussions with leading community based organizations, special guest speakers, information, resources, and other programming designed to help our students and our community learn more about the issues and get involved. Faculty members are encouraged to incorporate these films in their class curricula.
