CODA Wins Big at Oscars

CODA is the first motion picture starring a predominantly Deaf cast in leading roles to win Best Picture. As a result of CODA winning big at the Oscars, it’s making an impact on the sign language community. Troy Kotsur is the first Deaf male actor to win Best Supporting Actor, and writer-director Siân Heder earned her first-ever Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay.

What does CODA mean?

A child of a deaf adult, often known by the acronym “CODA”, is a person who was raised by one or more deaf parents or guardians. The term was coined by Millie Brother who also founded the organization CODA, which serves as a resource and a center of community for children of deaf adults as an oral and a sign language, and bicultural, identifying with both deaf and hearing cultures. CODAs often navigate the border between the deaf and hearing worlds, serving as liaisons between their deaf parents and the hearing world in which they reside.
