Check this out: Preserving the Wukchumni Language

This is a really uplifting short documentary about a Native American language that almost disappeared. With years of work from the last native speaker, Marie Wilcox, she put together a dictionary and is now working on stories and recordings to preserve the language and begin passing it on to future generations.
