Transitions: Death of a Mother Tongue

This film by Blackfeet producers Darrell Robes Kipp and Joe Fisher explores the relationship between language, thought, and culture, and examines the impact of language loss in Native American communities.  The film chronicles the disappearance of the Blackfeet tribal language during the period of 1890-1990, with analysis of why the Mother tongue was destroyed.  The film points out the tremendous loss that is only now beginning to be realized not only by tribal members but the society around them.  The film also illustrates the commonality of language loss amongst Indian tribes and other ethnic groups in America.

Total run time: 30 minutes
