Join members of the Nevada City Rancheria Nisenan Tribe as they discuss a new partnership with Nevada City Film Festival and Nevada County Arts Council through the making of a film that addresses the recovery of their critically endangered language. This partnership, in tandem with efforts towards restoring Federal Recognition, is testament to the whole community effort required to rebuild visibility. Beyond documenting efforts to revive a language previously considered extinct, the Nisenan are looking to their future. Twenty years from now, what will their homelands look like? What are our children being taught in schools about the true history of California? How will we – the broader community – experience Nisenan culture as a critical, valued part of our everyday story?

Activist Center workshops are sponsored by Earthjustice.
