We Still Live Here just screened in two Native communities on the west coast of Vancouver Island, in the tiny towns of Tofino and Ucluelet. This message just in from Marika Swann of the Tla-o-qui-aht Nation, who helped organize the panels and screenings:

"The themes in the film brought out some interesting dialogue about the work being done in our area and also what brought our language champions to the work. It is inspiring to see the parallels between our communities and the incredible achievements of our determined mothers."
