There will be a Meet and Greet opportunity before the film, and Q&A to follow with the fluent speaking elders and filmmaker Brigitte Timmerman.

About the film:
"Our Language is Sacred, no one can take it from us." –Omaha Elder.

Award-winning documentary about the handful of Native American fluent speakers that remain of the Omaha Tribe. Fluent speaking elders reflect on growing up speaking their native language, the efforts that were taken from outsiders to phase it out and why it is so important to preserve it. Hopefulness is expressed by the elders and a dedicated group of educators attempts to keep their language alive. WINNER of Best Documentary at the Red Nation International Film Festival and the Western Heritage Awards.
