A collage of documentary and ethnography, Wawa opens with reflections on a New York City based language lesson in chinuk wawa, an Indignenous language from the Pacific Northwest. Reflections point to patterns and linguistic details reveal shared experiences, transmuting ideas of cultural identity, language and history.
