Over the last 100 years, the American Indian Holocaust and the boarding school era nearly snuffed out the native language of Montana’s White Clay tribe. Today, less than five native speakers of the White Clay language remain. Nonetheless, kids, parents and teachers at the White Clay Language Immersion School in Harlem, Montana are fighting back to reclaim their native language. In doing so, they are blending traditional Indian ways and contemporary Euro-American culture and “two fractured worlds” are coming together to form a new whole.
