To Wake Up the Nakota Language (2017 | 6 min), by Louise BigEagle

This short documentary serves as a wake-up call, or plea, in regard to the disappearance of Indigenous languages across North America. Front and centre is Armand McArthur, one of the last fluent Nakota speakers living in Treaty 4 territory in southern Saskatchewan. He is committed to the revitalization of his language for both his community and for future generations. As he wisely states, “When you don’t know your language or your culture, you don’t know who you are.”
