    A language is lost every fourteen days. One of those endangered tongues is Minnesota's own Ojibwe language. Now a new generation of Ojibwe scholars and educators are racing against time to save the language. Working with the remaining fluent-speaking elders, they hope to pass the language on to the next generation. But can this language be saved? Told by Ojibwe elders, scholars, writers, historians and teachers, this TPT original production is a story filled with hope for the future.
