Chasing Voices is the extraordinary story of one of America’s most accomplished and underappreciated ethnographers, John Peabody Harrington, who from 1907 to 1961 secretly amassed over a million pages of notes, photographs, and audio recordings on over 150 different Native American languages throughout the United States, becoming the “Rosetta Stone” for today’s Native American tribes. This is a journey through the notes he collected, propelling us forward to the tribal communities today desperately working to reclaim their lost languages.
