Ever since I came across Arminius1871's map of New Dutchland
, I'm having thoughts about a German language nest somewhere in the United States part of the Northern Turtle Continent. Besides, as a Westerner and Middle-Westerner hybrid, I'm part German, and I would like my #GermanLanguageHeritage
back, even if it means being at least bilingual (or perhaps trilingual or quadrilingual). Who's got thoughts about the idea of a German language nest in the continent, like there's a Hawaiian language nest or a Maori one? What could the German-American Heritage Foundation of the USA
think of that initiative?
If Turner Classic Movies were to air a movie as a German-American Day special (German-American Day is on the 6th of October, FYI), I think it could be the 1959 version of Old Heidelberg (German: Alt Heidelberg), directed by Ernst Marischka. What do you think?
