Interactive Course Website

http://amin.umn.edu/dakota//

The Department of American Indian Studies maintains a free interactive Dakota language website where users can access lessons on a variety of topics, sound clips, dialogues, recordings of fluent speakers, and online activities and games.

Due to the critical point of language shift we are experiencing with Dakota in the state of Minnesota, classroom time may be one of the few opportunities language learners have to hear and use the language.

We hope that this website will help some people acquire a little bit of conversational ability in the language, but it cannot replace a real teacher. It is only meant to supplement the teachings of living people!
