- The Oneida Speak blends traditional Oneida storytelling with modern media, providing a window to a world that no longer exists. In the 1930s, a group of elders from the Oneida Nation of Wisconsin participated in FDR's Works Progress Administration Writers Project and shared stories of their life on the farm. In numerous journals written in Oneida, the elders recall historical personal accounts of detrimental land-grabbing policies, and the devastating impact of small pox and boarding schools in this hour-long documentary. Nominated for two Emmys.
