Description: The Young Ancestors follows a group of teenagers, who along with their mentor, learn their native Tewa because they are committed to revitalizing their language and keeping alive their traditions. In a broader context, it is the story of the burgeoning movement led by Native Americans to save their native languages. The Young Ancestors explores the historical reasons behind Native American language loss and uncovers the ways in which speaking one's native language heals on both individual and communal levels.
