This video segment explores the use and production of Loulis, the only non-human primate to learn a human language in the way that human children most typically do: from his mother. Further, the work of R. Allen and Beatrix T. Gardner continued with several other young chimpanzees that became Loulis adopted older siblings (Moja, Tatu, & Dar) and who helped Loulis to develop his use of American Sign Language within the social milieu.
