Review for Association on American Indian Affairs, Inc., Rockville, MD, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Dakota iapi nina teunhidapi. We all cherish our Dakota language. As a former grantmaker in Native Language Revitalization, there are efforts underway among Indigenous people throughout the world to renew, restore and revitalize language. Language is the root of a people's identity, culture, knowledge systems and lifeways. I support wholeheartedly the efforts of AAIA to revitalize the Dakota language for a new generation. The academic benefits of language and culture based education for Native students is well-documented.
