FIRST LANGUAGE  

Directed by Neal Hutcheson and Danica Cullinan

The Cherokee Indians of North America were once the dominant power in what is now the Southeastern United States. Around 14,000 Cherokee remain in their ancestral homeland in the mountains of North Carolina, but few among them still speak their native language, and no children are learning the language at home. The Eastern Band of Cherokee are now taking extraordinary steps in a fight to preserve the language with the establishment of a total immersion school. (56 min)
