Language Keepers Multimedia Story: California once had more linguistic variety than all of Europe. Today, the Indigenous communities in the region that still have fluent speakers of their Native language face an impending crisis: that no living speakers will remain in the coming decades. Language Keepers is a multimedia experience that features four sites of Indigenous language revitalization in California. Following members of the Karuk, the Tolowa, the Wukchumni, and the Kawaiisu peoples, Language Keepers explores how the loss of a language reaches much further than the disappearance of words.
