PBS to do documentary on Cherokee language program

Tahlequah, Oklahoma (AP) 11-08

A program that teaches the Cherokee language to Cherokee children will be featured in a PBS documentary.

A film crew and producer for “We Shall Remain” were in Tahlequah Nov. 13 to visit the Cherokee Language Immersion School and interview Principal Chief Chad Smith and others.

“We Shall Remain” will be a five-part documentary beginning in April. The series will cover major turning points in relations between American Indians from the 1600s through the early 1970s.

The Cherokee language program has 58 students ranging from 3- to 8-years-old.
