Trace metals mobilized from the soil have the potential to accumulate in surface waters, which can have consequences for ecological and human health. Total concentration of trace metals: arsenic, cadmium, copper, lead, and zinc were assessed across New England, and the associations with biogeochemical controls, landscape attributes, and seasonal dynamics were evaluated, and potential mechanisms explored.

The film “We Still Live Here” will be shown Tuesday, December 6 at 7:30 p.m. in Memorial Hall on the campus of Plymouth State University. The screening is free and open to the public and will be followed by a discussion led by Dr. Whitney Howarth, Associate Professor of History, and Dr. Katherine Harrington, Assistant Professor of Language and Linguistics.

In 1620, members of the Wampanoag nation of southern Massachusetts worked closely with the new settlers from England as these “pilgrims” began life in a new world. They would all give thanks and create an enduring cultural icon which lives to this day.

And in one of history’s great ironies, the descendants of those who greeted and helped those pilgrims, along with their language, have been greatly overshadowed almost to the point of disappearance. Now, a member of that nation is working to bring the language – and the culture – to life. A new PBS documentary tells the story of the Wampanoag language and its return to North America.

“We Still Live Here” follows the story of Jessie Little Doe Baird, a member of the Mashpee Wampanoag, who used multiple source documents to recreate the Wampanoag language of her ancestors, a language which had not been spoken for more than 100 years.

Hosted by Plymouth State University and New Hampshire Public Television, “We Still Live Here” is part of the Community Cinema series. Using materials from the PBS series “Independent Lens,” participants discuss a variety of topics raised by the filmmakers.  For more information about the series, call 535-2525.
