Intergenerational Dakota Immersion Weekends
Offered by Concordia Language Villages in partnership with
The Department of American Indian Studies at the University of Minnesota
Bring grandparents, parents, children, aunties, uncles, and cousins to help and encourage one another in learning and revitalizing the Dakota language!
Intergenerational Dakota Immersion Weekends are designed to bring families together to learn the Dakota language in a comfortable setting.Â Adults and children have fun learning through songs, games, and hands-on activities that reflect Dakota culture. Make your own snowsnake, prepare a traditional meal, learn about tracking animals in Minnesota, tell a story in Dakota, and explore Dakota star knowledge – all while practicing language you can use at home! Intergenerational Dakota Immersion Weekends welcome all ages â€” from babies to seniors. You donâ€™t need to have any prior knowledge of Dakota to enjoy our family programs.
Our first Intergenerational Dakota Immersion Weekends is February 25-27, 2011! Lodging and program take place at The Forest International Retreat Center in Marine on St Croix, MN, near Stillwater. Bring your appetite; delicious homemade meals are part of Concordia Language Villages trademark immersion programs!
Thanks to a grant from the Minnesota Indian Affairs Council, each participant receives a 90% scholarship. Adjusted tuition (includes meals and lodging) is:
Adults: $20 (reg. $200)
Ages 4-17: $10Â (reg. $100)
Ages 0-3: FREE
