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 cultural element of language and to consider the impacts of language loss and language revitalization efforts on Native communities. This lesson plan is intended for grades 6-8.
