Root Tongue

The ROOT TONGUE web app launched on International Mother Language Day February 21, 2018! A big thanks to our fearless Interactive Producer Michella Rivera-Gravage, our magical design studio Otherwise Co., our ever-brilliant development team Jessica Yazbeck, Marisa Wilson and Wali Hassan Jafferi, and fearless maintenance team Biagio Azzarelli and Christopher Guyton. We invite you to join us at!


ROOT TONGUE was made possible because of the generous support from family, friends and the following key funders: Creative Capital, National Geographic All Roads, San Francisco Arts Commission, University of California Humanities Institute for Research in the Arts, Porter College, UCSC Film & Digital Media, North American Taiwanese Women’s Association, Taiwanese United Fund, Big Ideas@Berkeley, Faculty Support Grant from CSUEB Division of Academic Affairs, and Indiegogo donors.
