        Jessie Little Doe Baird, Linguist | MacArthur Fellows Program

        In this interview, 2010 MacArthur Fellow Jessie Little Doe Baird discusses her journey toward reviving the language of her ancestors and restoring a vital element of cultural heritage to her Native American community. Baird founded the Wôpanâak Language Reclamation Project, an intertribal effort that aims to return fluency to the Wampanoag Nation through workshops and mentorship. Baird’s painstaking research and dedicated teaching is reclaiming the rich linguistic traditions of indigenous peoples and preserving precious links to our nation’s complex past. This resource is part of the MacArthur Fellows Program Collection.
