Students watch a film about a Native American woman, Marie Wilcox, who is the last fluent speaker of Wukchumni. For seven years, she created a dictionary in order to keep her language and culture alive. Students engage in learning activities to explore the importance and meaning of language, language loss, language revitalization efforts, and changes which take place in communities over time. This lesson plan is intended for grades 3-5.
