Omaha Tribe members are trying to revitalize their language

Two sisters from the Omaha Tribe keep a list of the people who still speak their language.

There are 12 names left.



Glenna Slater and Octa Keen are among the few certified to teach the Omaha Tribe’s language, Umónhon. None of the fluent speakers are under 70.



The single leaf of notebook paper is filled with names scribbled out. The sisters fear a day may come when the last name is scratched out.
