The Navajo Handprint

Great short film, edited together by Jesse Spaulding, filmed mostly by Alison Harper, talking about the Navajo Rosetta Stone project and the Navajo language. I appear at 2:42.

Customized Rosetta Stone software for the Navajo language took two years of work by Navajo Language Renaissance, the Rosetta Stone Endangered Language Program, and dozens of individuals who contributed their time, labor, and knowledge. Hear some of the individuals who worked on the product explain why Navajo is unique and an important language to preserve.
