Season 1 Episode 4
On this edition of Native Report host Stacey Thunder takes us to a brand new high school ITV class where kids are learning the Dakota language…it’s a great thing for high school students from the nearby Lower Sioux Community. We’ll also learn about a program offered by the Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College, which is creating a whole new accredited generation of Ojibwe language teachers. Co-Host Tadd Johnson then takes us to the back yard of a Bois Forte tribal member who teaches an Ojibwe language class for neighborhood kids every day in the summer. We’ll also talk to the elders about the importance of preserving and passing on language…and take a pop quiz on Native Report.
