About the Show

Premiere Date: July 2018

"Keep Talking" follows four Alaska Native women fighting to save Kodiak Alutiiq, an endangered language now spoken by less than 40 remaining fluent Native Elders. Their small community travels to remote Afognak Island to start teaching kids Alutiiq. At the camp, Sadie, a troubled teen, is inspired to begin learning the language and dances of her ancestors. Over the next five years, the women overcome historical and personal traumas to find joy and hope in the revitalization of their cultural heritage.
