This project is intended to bring awareness of how diverse and plentiful Native American languages were pre-contact and the effects of colonization on Native languages from pre-contact to present. Students will take an in depth look at the Wampanoag language revitalization that is happening with the Wampanoag tribe in Eastern Massachusetts. In order for students to create an understanding of how the past affects the present and connect these units to their lives, students will look at how they are effected by local language policies in Massachusetts.
