Learning The Lakota Language

Less than 70% of Native American students who attend South Dakota
public schools, graduate from high school. But the Sioux Falls School
District is working to turn those numbers around by introducing the
Native American culture and language into the classroom.

High school students in the Sioux Falls School District can take world
languages like Spanish or German, but a new dialect is also making

Native American students at Washington High school are enrolled in the
districts new Lakota Language class. Here they're learning much more
than vowels and consonants.
