Join Rich Holschuh for a place-based perspective on listening to the layers of stories embedded in the land. Languages embody the worldviews of those native to a particular place, formed over deep time and in close relationship with their homelands. These values persist and offer lasting examples, despite centuries of attempts at erasure.
