Our Last words is ultimately a story about the loss of language and the threat of losing ones culture. Filmmaker Angela Wandering Spirit and her daughter Essence journey back home to the Northwest Territories to uncover an understanding of the dying Chipewyan language and how closely language is tied to culture and heritage.

Filmed in stunning high definition, this POV documentary will bring you into Wanderingspirit's world as she shares her family history, discusses dying languages with experts, and uncovers her desire to learn the Chipewyan language with her daughter.
