Resurrecting A People's Language
“We are here." These were the words that Jessie “Little Doe” Baird heard in a dream, spoken by her ancestors in a language she didn’t understand. That dream was the beginning of a journey for Baird: to resurrect the language of her people, the Wampanoags. This morning, it was announced that she has received a half a million dollar MacAurthur Genius grant to continue her work. We'll talk with her about her life's work.
