Whitecap Dakota First Nation is leading a Dakota Language Gathering from May 29 – 31, 2018 in Saskatoon, SK. Elders, teachers, scholars and others from across Western North America will come together to identify ways to encourage younger generations to speak Dakota so they can teach future generations.
The Dakota Language Gathering includes workshops, presentations and keynote speakers; a trade show; a banquet and an optional tour of the new Chief Whitecap Elementary School.
Speakers from Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Alberta, Minnesota, Washington, North and South Dakota and other locations will share their wisdom and develop a new language legacy for the Dakota people. Stay tuned for speaker announcements.
