MIPoPS Presents the Films of Vi Hilbert
Vi Hilbert (1918-2008) was a member and noted elder of the Upper Skagit tribe, as well as a teacher storyteller, publisher and public speaker. Her commitment to preserving Lushootseed language and literature is largely responsible for the renaissance of interest in Lushootseed culture and the growth of tribal language programs all over western Washington. Together with Moving Image Preservation of Puget Sound (MIPoPS) we are honored to present two of her films — Learning Lushootseed (1982), an informational video on the Lushootseed language and the culture of the Skagit people, and Sharing Legends at Upper Skagit (1985), featuring footage of an event organized by Vi Hilbert with storytellers from seven Coast Salish tribes.
