    Rising Voices/Hothaninpi Before Christopher Columbus and his fellow Europeans arrived in North America, there were nearly 300 Native languages spoken north of Mexico. Today only half of those languages remain and experts say that by the year 2050, just 20 indigenous American languages will exist.
    This documentary is about how languages die - and how speaking them again can spark cultural and community restoration. It focuses on the Lakota (often called "Sioux") language and culture, the history that forced the language towards near extinction, and the challenges Lakota face today as they struggle to learn their ancestral language and teach it to their children. The film is a portrait of a culture in flux, focusing on the myriad conflicts around the disappearing language on the Lakota reservations of North and South Dakota.
    The Lakota nation is large, with more than 170, 000 tribal members, and that number is growing. Yet only 6000 people still speak Lakota, and the average age of its speakers will soon be 70 years old. Can the Lakota elders transmit the power of history and tradition, especially in the form of language, or will the heart and soul of their culture die with them?
    To examine this question, this program introduces viewers to a range of people, including the teachers working to save the language and the Lakota trying to learn their ancestral tongue. Woven through the documentary are also short first-person films made by Lakota filmmakers - stories that illustrate the strong connections the artists have between the Lakota language and their everyday lives.

    Washington Week [#5623H] * President-elect Donald Trump continues to announce the team that will help him implement his agenda once he takes office in January. The nation's first billionaire president is assembling what could be the richest cabinet in U.S. history. In stark contrast to his populist campaign message, his economic team has deep ties to Wall Street and could indicate he'll pursue an agenda of tax cuts and fewer regulations. Meanwhile, Trump must untangle himself from his broad international business interests. And just this week, the president-elect announced a deal with air conditioning manufacturer Carrier that will keep 1000 jobs from leaving Indiana for Mexico in exchange for $7 million in tax incentives.
    * On Capitol Hill, Rep. Nancy Pelosi survived a leadership challenge from a younger, more moderate member of the Democratic minority who argued for change after 14 years of Pelosi's leadership. The progressive California lawmaker will lead the House Democrats in opposing the policies of the incoming Trump administration and Republican-led Congress. Republicans have signaled their plans to vastly overhaul some of President Obama's signature achievements including health care.
    * In his final few weeks in office, President Obama is planning to implement several new executive actions to solidify his legacy. But many of proposed regulations on air pollution, use of public lands and energy efficiency can be reversed or rolled back by Trump when he takes office in January. How will the new administration affect Obama's policies, including the restored diplomatic relations with Cuba after the death of Fidel Castro?
    We'll get reporting and analysis from: Amy Walter of The Cook Political Report, Carrie Budoff Brown of Politico, Philip Rucker of The Washington Post, Manu Raju of CNN, and Carol Lee of The Wall Street Journal.

    Sacred Journeys with Bruce Feiler [#101] Lourdes Host Bruce Feiler embeds with a group of active duty and retired US military, wounded in Afghanistan, Iraq and other American wars, as they travel to the Catholic shrine of Lourdes in southwest France in search of healing. More than 5 million pilgrims visit this shrine to the Virgin Mary every year to bathe in the waters of a spring that Catholics believe has miraculous powers.
    The wounded warriors from America join 30,000 other military and their families from 35 different nations on an International Military Pilgrimage that's now in its 55th year. While only half the American soldiers are Catholic, all hope that Lourdes can provide spiritual and emotional healing beyond the treatment they've already received for their physical wounds and disabilities.

    Sacred Journeys with Bruce Feiler [#102] Shikoku The Island of Shikoku in Japan is the birthplace of the most revered figure in Japanese Buddhism, the monk and teacher Kobo Daishi, who brought a populist form of Buddhism to Japan from China in the 9th century. For hundreds of years, a 750-mile pilgrimage route has circled this mountainous island, connecting 88 separate temples and shrines that claim connection to Kobo Daishi. Feiler circles the island, following a pilgrim trail that's taken by hundreds of thousands of Japanese and international pilgrims every year, a Buddhist pilgrimage that welcomes pilgrims of all faiths. Temple priests introduce Feiler to sacred ceremonies that date back thousands of years, revealing how the presence of Kobo Daishi is believed to accompany all who follow in his footsteps. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

    In 2014, after a 5-decade freeze that lasted longer than the Cold War, President Barack Obama announced the United States would begin reestablishing diplomatic relations with Cuba. But last week's passing of former Cuba leader Fidel Castro is a reminder that the U.S. embargo that went into effect after he seized power remains in effect for most economic sectors. While renewed trade could have economic payoffs for both countries, the Cuban government also has been especially slow to approve new deals. Amy Guttman reports how, 2 years on, U.S.-Cuban trade still has a long way to go.

    My Louisiana Love This program journeys with filmmaker Monique Verdin on a quest to connect with her ancestral roots within the Houma Nation, a Native American community reeling from decades of environmental degradation and natural disasters.
    The Houma, one of the largest Native American tribes in North America, live in South Louisiana communities where decaying marshlands serve as the only buffer against storm-surge floodwaters. Verdin sees her people's traditional way of life - and the land they live on - threatened by a cycle of man-made environmental crises. After witnessing the devastation caused by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita in 2005, and the BP oil spill in 2010, Verdin finds herself turning to environmental activism, and documenting her family's struggle to stay close to the land despite the cycle of disasters and the rapidly disappearing coastline.
    This film looks at the complex and uneven relationship between the oil and gas industry and the indigenous people of the Mississippi Delta. In this intimate portrait, Verdin must overcome the loss of her house, her father and her partner - and redefine the meaning of "home."
